Three women suspects attempted to rob two women along Dwight Way and Propsect Street Friday evening.
On Friday, Feb. 17 at around 9:40 p.m. two women were walking on Dwight Way and Prospect Street. They attempted to walk past three women. One of the suspects sprayed a substance — possibly pepper spray — in one of the victim’s face.
The victims attempted to run away but the suspects grabbed the second victim, punched her in the face, and knocked her to the ground where she was also sprayed.
The suspects demanded the victim’s property. A man passing by intervened and the suspects ran off without taking the victims’ property.
The suspects were last seen getting into a white Dodge Charger which fled westbound on Dwight Way.
The victims suffered physical injuries but declined medical assistance.
Berkeley Police Department and UC Berkey Police searched the area but were unable to find the suspects.

Suspect No. 1 – A Black female in her teens, 5 ft. 4 inches in height, with short hair
and a think build.
