The University of California Police Department reports that there was an armed robbery last night at the vista point at signpost 15 on Grizzly Peak. The victims, a man and a woman, were sitting in their parked car when four men exited a large pickup truck and approached their car. One suspect stood in back of the car to prevent it from leaving while another suspect approached the passenger side and pointed an automatic handgun at the victim. The other two suspects, wearing black ski masks, were standing next to the driver’s side window.
The Berkeley City Council special session on the $310 million — or higher — unfunded liability on promised employee benefits revealed the difficult choices faced by the city.
