Attempted robbery suspect arrested

Submitted By Sgt. Raj Maharaj, Milpitas PD

On March 29, at approximately 7:28 p.m., the victim, a 44 year-old male from San Jose, California, was seated at the bus stop on Dixon Road when he was approached by Bikim Rashad Mobley. Initially, Mobley asked the victim for $2 to buy a beverage and the victim provided him with the money. Once Mobley received the $2, he asked the victim for more money, but the victim refused.

Mobley moved his hand towards his waistband while threatening the victim by saying he would put a bullet in the victim. Fearing for his safety, the victim ran into a nearby store and called 9-1-1. Milpitas Police officers responded to the area and eventually located Mobley in the area of Dixon Road and Arizona Avenue in Milpitas. Mobley was arrested for attempted robbery and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail.

The Milpitas Police Department would like to remind the public that the crimes of robbery and assault are serious and usually money is the motivation. These incidents are considered crimes of violence because they involve the threat or actual use of physical violence. The basic rules of prevention are to be sensible and to be alert. If possible, don't walk alone during late-night hours, walk in groups whenever you can as there is always safety in numbers. If you are a victim of a robbery, please don't resist, give up your property and don't give up your life or get injured. Immediately report the crime to the police and try to describe the attacker accurately. Your actions can help prevent others from becoming victims as well.

Anyone with information about this investigation should telephone the Milpitas Police Department at 408-586-2400. Those who wish to remain anonymous can telephone the Crime Tip Hotline at 408-586-2500 or utilize the on-line crime tip form: http://www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov/citydept/police/crimetip/default.asp
