A woman reported being robbed by two men as she walked on North Tracy Boulevard on the night of Tuesday, Jan. 29.

Employees at Burger King, 3220 N. Tracy Blvd., called police at 8:20 p.m. to report that a woman had entered the business screaming that she was just robbed.

The victim told officers that she was walking in front of an apartment building when a black man and Latino man stole the gold chain around her neck, her cellphone, $1,050 in an undisclosed money form and $3 in cash.

She suffered scratches to her face during the robbery. One man had a knife, according to the victim.

Both men were described by the victim as 18 to 20 years old and wearing hooded sweatshirts that covered their faces. They were last seen running south on Tracy Boulevard.

Police detained two men a short time later, but, the victim did not identify them as the suspects.

A report was taken by officers.

Tracy police received 145 calls for service Tuesday, Jan. 29. The following is a sample of those reports.

12:39 a.m.: Extra patrols were requested on the 100 block of Manzanita Lane, where a woman reportedly heard knocking on her window. The woman’s roommate also called to report noises. No one was in the area when officers checked the block.

"... $1,050 in an undisclosed money form..."

Nothing suspicious there.

Who in the hell walks down Tracy Blvd, at night, with $1,050 on them?

Well i got robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight on 11th street about a year ago and they caught the guy. They are police not magicians and do a good job for the most part in my opinion.

Tracy PD could not catch a cold, much less stop crime.

Bring in the national guard, and get some real men to defend the Tracy streets.

We got nothing but Barney Fifes on the Tracy PD.

In all fairness, I'd probably be just as bitter as you if all the residents of Tracy looked down on me the same way they do you.

Clean yourself up a bit, put down the Big Mac, try a little bit of exercise, get an education and maybe even apply for a job, see a professional about your obvious self-loathing and your severe "little man" syndrome, and then maybe you can rise up in social status and finally attain the respect of these "rednecks" you so badly crave.

You'll never have acceptance from your neighbors if you never recognize and accept yourself for what you are. If Tracy is a joke of a town, you're the clown shoes. But you don't have to be, ChrisRoberts. You don't have to be.

The National Guard Chris? Who do you think make up these so called by you "real men" are formed from. They're you local Barney Fifes. That's right. 80% of out National Guards men and women are Peace Officers, Probation Officers, CDCR Guards and Fire personnel.

What did the five fingers say to the face? SLAP!
