Police release dramatic video of Lake Merritt mugging
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- On Friday, Oakland police released a dramatic and scary video of a woman being mugged near Lake Merritt.
The victim shrinks in fear as two men, one of them armed, take her purse and bag.
Although the two suspects have been arrested, police released this video in hopes that other victims will come forward.
The suspects have been identified as members of the "Case" street gang.
On Friday night another woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, told us she was also the victim of a mugging on the same night, within the same hour, as another woman in her neighborhood.
