A man was robbed at gunpoint on Saturday after returning to Foster City from the Lucky Chances Casino in Colma before 11:46 p.m., according to police.
The 68 year-old was visiting from Oklahoma and returned to the Courtyard Marriott at 550 Shell Blvd. after an evening of gambling, according to police. While exiting his rental car in the hotel parking lot, the victim was immediately confronted by two men he believes followed him from the casino, according to police. One suspect pointed a shotgun at the victim and, fearing for his life, the victim handed over his phone, car keys, wallet, $17,000 in cash and $19,000 in casino chips, according to police.
The two suspects fled the scene in a late model, four-door white sedan, according to police. The two suspects are described as Asian or Hispanic between the ages of 30 to 39. The suspect who brandished the weapon is approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 190 pounds with a stocky build, according to police. The second suspect is described as thin and it is unknown if he was armed at the time of the robbery, according to police.
Police remind people to park in well-lit areas and to observe their surroundings when exiting their vehicles at night.
Anyone with information regarding the crime should call the Foster City Police Department at (650) 286-3300 or the tip line at (650) 286-3323.
