Two teen boys, 16 and 15 years old, were arrested Sunday evening in connection with a robbery and assault of customer at the Super Food Gas & Liquor on Willow Pass Road.
The Concord Police Department was called at 8:10 p.m. to the business at 2714 Willow Pass Road after a male customer reported being beaten and robbed by two juveniles, police said.
The victim told officers that after he exited the store, two males attacked him, punched and kicked him while he was on the ground, then stole from him liquor he had just purchased from the store, police said.
The man said his teen attackers fled on foot, taking a bicycle and skateboard with them.
The victim sustained minor injuries in the attack and was transported to a local hospital for treatment, police said.
Within 10 minutes, a Concord officer spotted two male juveniles on Parkside Drive, just outside Baldwin Park, who had a bicycle, skateboard and matched the physical description of the two robbery suspects, police said.
A witness to the robbery identifying the pair as the alleged robbers, along with evidence reportedly in their possession, led to the two's arrest, police said.
They were booked at CPD jail for suspicion of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, and then transported to Juvenile Hall.
The suspects were a 16 year-old Concord boy and a 15 year-old from Vallejo, police said.
