Robber Caught on Surveillance

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for help identifying a suspect wanted for robbery.

On Tuesday, November 2, 2010, at 4:55 a.m., the victim was riding a bike in the area of Cantalier Street and Del Paso Boulevard.  The two suspects were in the area on foot and followed the victim.  At one point, the suspects caught up to the victim and one of them held a knife to the victim's throat.  He then reached into the victim's pockets and took his wallet and cell phone.  The victim left his bike and ran.  The suspect took the victim's bike and chased him but was able to get away.  The picture/video attached depicts the suspect riding the victim's bike as he chased the victim after the robbery.

The main robbery suspect was described as a male White adult, 19-20 years old, 5'5" tall, 120 lbs, with short brown hair, wearing a black jacket. The picture below shows a unique design on the back of the jacket. The second suspect was described as a male White adult, 19-20 years old, 6'0" tall and 140 lbs.
