Important Message about armed robberies in the Tri-City area

Please be vigilant. This was forwarded to my neighborhood watch in Union City.


The following message was forwarded from Neighborhood Watch Group in Fremont, who received it from Fremont's Chief of Police:


We have been having a string of armed robberies all over town. The tri-city area (Fremont, Newark, Union City) and Hayward seem to have two or three groups committing these robberies. I would urge everyone to not walk alone, but in larger groups in the evenings. Do not resist if confronted; nothing you are carrying is worth injuries or worse. We have several crews of plainclothes officers working these cases, but it has been difficult since the suspects are hitting all over the place and we have as yet to identify a pattern. Please use caution.
