12-14 is kind of young to be driving a car on a major expressway enroute to 101 for a speedy getaway...as is strong-arming & robbing a senior citizen.

Young punks on their way to prison one day. Are they gang members? At least they were arrested, I hope she's okay.

Attacks like these show why cautious women prefer to park in surface parking lots rather than parking garages. Stanford has long had thieves casing cars in broad daylight but violent attacks like this usually occur when there's less visibility.

Awful young to drive across the bay, hide in ambush and violently attack a woman. They likely will never have a good/productive future.

Think of the victim, our current California elected politicians certainly do not.
Thank you, Palo Alto Police Dept.
