Mountain View visitors robbed at gunpoint

Two Mountain View visitors were robbed at gunpoint at a parking garage in the 100 block of Bryant Street at about 10:45 p.m. on Friday, police said.

A Daly City man, 51, and a Cupertino woman, 49, were talking on the top floor of the parking structure located at 135 Bryant Street, when two suspects, each carrying handguns, demanded the victims' wallets and money, Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said.

The male victim gave the two men his wallet, which held bank cards and $5 cash, and his cell phone; the woman handed over $20, Wylie said.

The suspects fled as people were heard coming up the stairs. There were no other witnesses, Wylie said.
