After BART passengers got robbed and had their phones, bags, wallets purses, luggage stolen from them around 9:30 PM at the Oakland Coliseum BART station last Saturday night in Oakland fans who attend Oakland A’s and Golden State Warriors games have to ask themselves are they really safe on the mass transit ride. Witnesses reported that 60 juveniles jumped the fare gates and ran to the BART train platforms and robbed trains while passengers were boarding and exiting and passengers who were seated were beaten and robbed.

The robbers held the doors open on a Dublin bound train and beat the riders while robbing them there were no reports of guns or other weapons that were used during the robbery. The A’s and Warriors were not playing a home game that night at that time.  A’s and Warriors fans, workers at the Oakland Coliseum who use BART are determined to use the transit system no matter what say they will protect themselves they did not specify how they would go about protecting themselves but if these types of flash mob robberies continue someone could get hurt or even killed.
