Man robbed at knifepoint in Menlo Park

Menlo Park police seek two suspects in Jack Lyle Park robbery

If you go walking after midnight, keep an eye out. Late Wednesday night, two men robbed a third who was strolling through Jack Lyle Park in Menlo Park.

Brandishing a knife, the two men demanded the 24-year-old victim hand over his property. They escaped with cash and an iPhone.

Police were called to the park at 1060 Middle Ave. shortly after midnight. They described the suspects as two white men in their 20s. One stood about 6 feet tall, with a thin build and brown hair. He wore a long, baggy black winter jacket with dark pants. The other, described as a heavy-set man with brown hair, wore a dirty beige T-shirt with a graphic design and jeans.

Anyone with information on the robbery may call Officer Jeff Vasquez at 650-330-6300 or call the anonymous tip line at 650-330-6395.

Tough times when something like this happens in a lovely neighborhood like that.

Then again, what would anyone be doing out alone after mid ignt?
