Not guilty plea in $1 robbery
April 01, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Matthew Nguyen

A San Mateo man accused of robbing a teen girl of $1 after entering her backyard and pointing an Airsoft pistol will stand trial in July.

Matthew Nguyen, 22, pleaded not guilty to charges of vandalism, robbery and assault in the Feb. 26 incident on the 3200 block of Verdun Avenue.

After entering his plea, Nguyen was scheduled for a July 21 jury trial and he remains in custody on $50,000 bail.

San Mateo police arrested Nguyen after responding to calls of a suspected robber and found him nearby wearing clothing that matched the girl’s description.

According to the girl, she was sitting at her dining room table inside the home when she looked up from her homework to see a man in a ski mask standing outside the window pointing a gun. The man yelled for her “to just get money” and she screamed for her father who called police. The girl pulled a $1 bill from her pocket and handed it to the man through the door before he fled.

When arrested, Nguyen had the dollar and airsoft pistol, according to police.

While being booked at the San Mateo police station, Nguyen became enraged and threw a punch at an officer but missed and also vandalized the holding room in which he was kept, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Nguyen returns to court July 21 for a pretrial conference prior to his jury trial.
