Two females were attacked near the south side of campus on Feb. 15 in an attempted strong arm robbery by three unknown assailants.
At approximately 9:40 p.m., two females were walking near Dwight Way and Prospect Street when they were approached by three black females in their teens, according to Berkeley Police Department Sgt. David White.
One of the suspects sprayed the victims with what is believed to have been pepper spray. When the two female victims attempted to get away, another suspect grabbed one of the women and knocked her to the ground, White said.
“The suspects verbally demanded property, and a good Samaritan passed by, intervened and scared the suspects off,” he said.
Officers conducted an area check after the incident but were unable to locate the suspects, according to White. NBC Bay Area reported that the suspect fled from the scene in a white Dodge Charger.
The suspects are described as black females all in their teens. One is said to have had a thin frame and short hair and is approximately 5 feet 4 inches.
The second suspect is described as having had her hair in a ponytail and wearing a dress or skirt. The third suspect is approximately 5 feet 5 inches with braided hair and was wearing a pink shirt and denim jacket.
