Lawrence Pennington (19, Oakland) was taken into custody for theft and resisting arrest.
Lawrence Pennington arrested again Sept 3 2018 https://www.bartcrimes.com/incident/25380/
I saw this man after he was apprehended (I noted the time, 10:26 a.m., because I was curious whether it would show up on the BPD daily log). Two BART officers had him sitting against the barrier wall north of the agent's booth. The apparent victim, a young woman, was sitting in the booth, talking to the agent. It appeared that her backpack had been taken -- or in any case, one of the BART officers walked over with a backpack and placed it next to her. I wonder how the officers managed to intervene so quickly, as the suspects get away in most of these robberies.
Probably, the latter.
Lawrence Pennington: First time robbing someone on BART or just the first time getting caught?
