The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a Monday afternoon armed robbery where three district students were victims.

A letter sent to all Lincoln Unified families stated that the three victims were walking on Harrisburg Place near Polk Way on Monday when the passenger of a vehicle stole one of the student’s backpacks. The suspect was reportedly holding a silver handgun during the robbery. The suspects in the vehicle were described as four Asian males in a four-door Infinity with a sunroof and silver wheels. The value of the backpacks or their contents have not been released.

Part of the letter read “The safety of our students, families, and staff is our primary concern.”

This is the second armed robbery involving Lincoln students as victims in the past two and a half months, since the district has been in session for the 2018-19 school year. In the previous robbery, the suspects, who were Lincoln High School students at the time, were arrested on suspicion of robbery.

The suspects in the most recent case remain at large. Anyone with information regarding today’s robbery is asked to call the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office at 209-468-4400.
