Armed men steal laptop at Caltrain stationBy Diana Samuels
A man walking to a train at the San Antonio Caltrain Station in Mountain View was attacked by three robbers with a gun, police said.
The 32-year-old man was in the pedestrian tunnel between platforms shortly after 8:50 p.m. Thursday when he was approached by two men in their 20s wearing dark clothing, public safety spokeswoman Jaime Garrett said.
One of the men held a black handgun and they demanded the victim's wallet and laptop bag.
"The victim and suspects struggled, and the victim was struck multiple times in the face," Garrett said. The victim told police that at some point a third man began punching him as well, though he didn't see him.
The robbers ran off with the man's laptop and laptop bag. The victim sought medical care, but she didn't know what kind of injuries he sustained, Garrett said.
