HERCULES (KRON) — A Hercules couple was robbed at gunpoint on Wednesday outside their home after losing money at Cache Creek Casino earlier in the day, according to police.

Police were called to the 1000 block of Canterbury at around 9:38 p.m. on the report of a robbery.

The couple had just arrived home from the Cache Creek Casino when a male suspect took her purse from her shoulder as she was walking toward her home, police said.

The suspect ran toward a four-door sedan parked across the street, but turned and pointed a pistol at the woman and told her to shut up when she screamed, according to police.

The scream alerted her husband who was still in their truck. But when he tried to get out of the truck, another suspect shattered the driver’s side window with a black pistol and demanded the man’s property, police said.

The suspect took the man’s cellphone from his jacket and ran to the sedan.

The suspects were last seen driving on east on Canterbury.Police said they recovered the purse and the husband’s cellphone on Tara Hills Drive near Shawn Drive in Pinole.

Officers have not made any arrests in the case.
