Trios target men in Woodland robberies

Two men in Woodland were robbed in separate incidents by trios of men in black shirts and jeans.

The first robbery occurred about 9:45 p.m. Saturday when a 24-year-old man suffered a minor head wound when struck with an unknown object by one of three robbers. He was attacked when he went outside to move his truck.

The robbers took his wallet and fled, Woodland police said. The men were described as about 6 feet tall and wearing black t-shirts and blue jeans.

About four hours later, in front of a residence on Oak Avenue, three men robbed a 32-year-old man.

The three robbers held him up at gunpoint, taking his wallet, car keys and cell phone. Police learned that they had been following the victim for several blocks, and then robbed him when he pulled over. A woman driving a black Honda Accord drove the robbers away.

The thieves were described as all about 5 feet 6 inches tall and wearing black shirts and jeans.
