Man robbed at ATM

A man was robbed on Oct. 29, as he was depositing money in an ATM at the Wells Fargo at 2600 W. El Camino Real, a spokesman with the Mountain View Police Department said.

According to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, the 21-year-old man had an envelope filled with cash and was preparing to deposit it in the ATM outside the bank, at about 10:30 p.m., when an unidentified man sprayed him in the face with pepper spray.

The victim dropped his envelope, and the robber picked it up and fled, Jaeger said. Detectives are investigating the crime.

Men wield knives in confrontation

Two patrons of Francesca's, a sports bar and grill located at 2135 Old Middlefield Road, were arrested for brandishing pocket-knives at one another during an alcohol-fueled confrontation on Oct. 25, according to a representative for the Mountain View Police Department.

The men — both in their mid-30s — began arguing around 10 p.m. that night, said Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer with the MVPD.

The men gave conflicting statements to officers who responded to a 911 call, Jaeger said. Heriberto Lombera, a 36-year-old from Menlo Park, and Ernest Martinez, a 35-year-old from San Jose, were both arrested for brandishing a weapon.
