The 29-year-old victim said that someone approached from behind at about 2 a.m. and demanded his money, according to Liz Wylie, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department. When he turned around, the victim saw a man pointing a silver handgun at him. The gunman also demanded the victim's cell phone.
The victim complied with the robber's demands, handing over his wallet and iPhone, Wylie said. The robber then fled eastbound on East Middlefield Road. The victim called police about 20 minutes later from his friend's house on Easy Street.
Officers did not locate the suspect, but police are asking local businesses for any surveillance footage they may have of the robbery, Wylie said. The suspect is described as being either Hispanic or Filipino and in his late 20s. He is of medium height and build and wore a dark hooded sweatshirt at the time of the robbery.
