3 teens arrested, 1 at large in robbery at Stanford

By the Daily Post staff

A robbery on the Stanford campus on Monday (July 15) by four teenage boys led police to surround Palo Alto High School, where three of the suspects were arrested. A fourth remains at large.

Just after 6 p.m., the four teens approached a man walking on Lausen Street near Campus Drive, and one of the teens punched the man in the face and attempted to take something from the victim.

A second man interrupted the robbery. Then one of the teens pulled out what appeared to be a Glock handgun, though it may have actually been a replica.

The first victim went to a blue emergency tower to notify police.

The robbers took off on the bikes down Galvez Street to El Camino Real. They were spotted a few minutes later on a bike path near Palo Alto High School.

Police found three of the teens under the football bleachers at Paly and arrested them. Officers found a replica Glock handgun in a nearby trash can, according to radio transmissions.

But the fourth teen eluded police despite a search of the Paly campus.

The fourth teen was believed to be about 15 years old, wearing a black hoodie. Stanford police didn’t provide any additional information about the teen’s description.
