UNION CITY -- Police say two people were robbed at gunpoint on Tuesday night by two armed suspects about one half-hour apart in different parts of the city.
No one was injured in either robbery.
Officers responded to the first armed robbery at 10:20 p.m. on Monterra Terrace, said police Cmdr. Ben Horner.
The victim told police she was walking home alone when she was approached by two suspects. One of them pointed a small semi-automatic handgun at the her head and threatened to kill her if she screamed, she said.
The second suspect took the victim's purse, Horner said.
The men were seen getting into an older model 4-door beige vehicle, Horner said.
About 30 minutes later, at 10:50 p.m. officers responded to another armed robbery on Pluto Way just over four miles away from the first incident.
That victim told officers that two men approached him as he exited his vehicle. One of the men pointed a semi-automatic pistol at the victim and then ordered him to hand over his belongings, Horner said.
The suspects fled the area on foot with the victim's property. Police did not say what was taken.
Police did not have complete descriptions for any of the suspects.
Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call police at 510-675-5220.
