Robbery at gunpoint on CVHS campus

Three men robbed three students at gunpoint in a CVHS parking lot on Jan. 14, according to Lt. Ray Kelly of Alameda County Sheriff’s Office. One robber fired a shot while fleeing the scene. No one was hurt. 

One of the victims called the sheriff at 9:30 p.m., claiming three unidentifiable males robbed them of a wallet with $200, a cell phone and a pair of the victim’s shoes that are supposedly worth $600. 

One suspect had a black, semi-automatic handgun that he brandished at the victims and fired in the air, the students said. Investigators followed up on this claim by recovering a shell casing at the scene. 

The suspects fled in a black sedan and were last seen driving south on Redwood Road, likely towards the highway. The case is now currently under the jurisdiction of the Alameda County Robbery and Investigation Unit, where it will be further explored there.

    I think it is very scary that something like this happened on school grounds. School is supposed to be a safe place for kids and yet someone would go the extra mile to commit this crime on school property.I think that CVHS should take this as a sign to increase security, for example, placing more cameras outside the school could help. I hope the 3 suspects pay for what they did sooner or later.

    It is situations like these that never allow us to feel safe in school, but then again it is hard to come up with any realistic solution for situations like these. People can end up being robbed anywhere at anytime, even right outside the safety of the school grounds it can happen. For now the only thing we can do is have more students be aware of their surroundings and the dangers of being outside of a supervised area.

    This is actually crazy that this happened at cvhs. I’d be so mad if someone tried to rob me and especially if they had a gun. It’s sad to see lowlife people robbing students at school. It shows how desperate people are just to make a little money. Hopefully they get caught and arrested.

    This whole story is crazy. Like how you gonna rob someone at a highschool, even more kids that go to that school. Thats just said you gotta rob kids to get some money, because they definetely gonna sell them shoes for cash too. Not only that but you robbed them at gun point and even shot into the air, which is crazy and sad. It’s tough how all this happened at a place of learning.

    I think it is scary that this happened on school campus, a place where we all come every day where we should feel safe. I heard of a similar incident happening in another parking lot nearby, and it makes me wonder if it is the same people committing these robberies. Either way, these people need to be caught and locked up for a long time, and I hope the police department is able to find out who they are.

    It is really crazy to me that a robbery like this would happen on the school grounds. The people who did this crime risked a lot of punishment if they were caught, only for such a little amount of money. It is even more baffling to me that they would do such a crime at school.

    An incident like this is what causes fear. Students are supposed to feel safe at school. In fact many students walk home everyday and the fact that this happened not to long after some students get out after practices and such is honestly very scary. Multiple grown men feel the need to go by a high school and rob kids honestly is just disgusting and very disappointing. Unfortunately things like this are becoming more normal and normalized and its a sad thought. What if something did happen to those poor kids right outside of the place we call school.

    It’s shocking that three grown men would rob three children like this, even using weaponry to get what they want, and so close to campus? That’s even more worrying. If the suspects haven’t already been caught, I sure hope they are soon; they shouldn’t be able to walk freely after what they did. It’s also a good thing for more people to be aware of things like this, so people can be alert and stay safe.

    It is very scary to see that a crime like this is happening in our home area. I know that there are robberies everywhere but hearing that there are some so close to where you live gives you a different feeling. I hope that this spreads awareness and people can be more alert.

    It’s very frightening to hear that there are these types of robberies happening to cv high school students. The high school has to be better protected, in order to protect the students. I can’t imagine how the students felt when there was a gun pointing at their face and all their valuables are taken away. This can be extremely traumatizing, and there has to be more security outside the campus. There also has to be more coverage on these crimes that occur on campus, because I had no idea this happened, and neither did most of my friends. If there was more coverage or announcements, then students would know to be safe and cautious. This article did an amazing job of informing me. It was very helpful and made me more aware.

    It’s crazy to think that even high school students are getting robbed even on school property and the fact that it’s at gunpoint makes it even worse. It’s horrible that now we have to be careful about what happens around us and be cautious because something like that can happen and even in a small town like castro valley to a young person such as a high school student. The gun was shot in the air too so that proves that it was real and was ready to be fired so there could have been a casualty but thankfully there wasn’t. Now students are going to be a little more on edge with everything else that’s happening around them.

    I think the school should of done a better job to tell students because this could be really dangerous for the school not to address it formal is wrong.

    It is very shocking to hear that this type of crime has been committed where the youth of Castro Valley are supposed to feel safe. Incidents such as this can deeply impact the ability of the students to not only learn, but to also feel safe on campus. It would seem that the best course of action to prevent similar incidents in the future is to increase campus security, possibly a more advanced security camera system.

    Wow, if it was right by the school then the robbers might have been aiming specifically for high school students. I think that is very scary and we should be cautious.

    This is really shocking to hear, hopefully it doesn’t happen again and that the three suspects are caught, we really do need more police roaming the area around our school since its close to the highway making it easy to access quickly.

    The people that did the crime is terrible thing. They shouldn’t have done that and would be punished sooner or later by bad karma.

    I hope that the 3 people who did the crime end up doing serious time for what they did, they must pay the price for their crimes and they had NO right to rob people like that.
