San Ramon teen arrested in Christmas Eve robbery

Police arrested a pair of teenagers in connection with the Christmas Eve robbery of a 15-year-old Danville resident, according to Danville Police Chief Steve Simpkins.

At 10:15 p.m. on Dec. 24, the teen was on Meese Court when the suspects pulled up to him in a white Ford pick-up truck. The teen believed the suspects were friends of his and entered the vehicle, said Det. Allan Shields. One of the suspects then pulled out a small pistol and robbed the victim of his wallet, ID and cell phone.

The victim was then allowed to exit the vehicle, the gunman got in and the pair drove off. Police are not releasing whether the three teens knew each other, though Shields said the suspects are cousins.

Police arrested San Ramon resident Ibraham D'Bouk, 18, on Dec. 28. D'Bouk was charged with robbery, booked in county jail and released on $50,000 bail. The gunman, a 16-year-old Castro Valley resident, was arrested on Jan. 4 and has been charged with robbery with a gun enhancement. He is still in custody in juvenile hall on a $50,000 bond.

Another sad report of crime in crime ridden Danvile....Gun Enhancement at 16 yrs old - we've seen the videos encouraging this behavior, but they tell us the artists are not trying to encite young people to act this way - can't have it both ways???!!!

Where does it state that the victim was a drug dealer???? Or anything about a scale or backpack? If there is a new article that mentions this please post for others to read.

maybe they were friends, maybe they weren't friends, maybe they were cousins. Sounds like 3 Stooges and the Keystone Kops to me.
