According to the KGO report, unidentified people robbed thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.
Surveillance footage shows the victim dropping a bucket of water and a hose as one of the suspects is running towards him.

The victim’s 11-year-old daughter told KGO, “I was thinking that either someone is going to get shot or someone like our neighbors will call the police, and then it is going to be a hostage situation.”
The father says he had bruises around his eye as the suspects pushed his face into a wall, but there was no harm to the rest of his family.
“I love the city, but the city is changing. Be careful. Be careful, if you have to wash your cars, do it to the neighbour,” he told KGO.
