    BART holdup victim grabs knife, kills robber

    Henry K. Lee, Chronicle Staff Writer

    Friday, February 20, 2009

    (02-20) 11:29 PST OAKLAND -- A man being robbed by two Oakland men in the parking lot of the Fruitvale BART station managed to grab a knife from one of the assailants and stabbed the other one to death, authorities said today.

    The robbery victim was approached by the two 18-year-old men about 9:30 p.m. Thursday. One of the men showed a knife and the other said he had a gun, BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.

    Their target, a 23-year-old man who lives out of state, was robbed of some items before wrestling away the knife from one of the men and stabbing the other robber, Johnson said. He said the stabbing "appears to be a self-defense move."

    The two assailants ran, and the robbery victim, whose name was not released, called Oakland police.

    A short time later, police got a 911 call from a nearby home about a stabbing, Johnson said.

    That call came from a house around the corner from the station, where the family of Christopher Gonzalez lives. Gonzalez ran into the home, cried out for his parents and sister and collapsed in his father's arms, the father, Javier Gonzalez, said today.

    The elder Gonzalez said he had tried to perform CPR but had been pulled away by police. Christopher Gonzalez died at the home.

    The other alleged robber was also at the home and was arrested, Johnson said. He had items from the holdup but was not armed, Johnson said. His name has not been released.

    Christopher Gonzalez worked at Oakland Raiders games and helped with his father's roofing business, the elder Gonzalez said.

    Good for the robbery victim. If all robberies went down that way, this would be a better world.

    if i'm not mistaken a guy went crazy on a bus in canada and for no reason stabbed a rider in the neck then slowly decapitated him and then calmly walked off the bus.

    anyway, the mugger got what he deserved

    And that happened once. And it made wicked big news. Take into account all the crazy shit that happens in the States by comparison. Not so big news.

    And he didn't calmly walk off the bus. Everyone got off the bus and barricaded the guy on there. Then a Trucker who stopped to help handed out Tire Irons to a few of the guys so if the guy got off, they'd beat his ass to a fine pulp.


    Oh, and the bus was either going to, or coming from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Right there is your problem. Winnipeg and Manitoba in general is full of fucking loonie bins. I swear, it's the biggest sanitarium without walls or fences ever.
