Man Gets Two Years in Prison, Must Pay Fine for 2013 San Bruno Robbery

Prosecutors said that on May 30, 2013, the man and a co-defendant pointed a gun and demanded the purse of a woman as she sat in her car in the parking lot of Target.

By Bay City News Service:

A man convicted of robbing a woman at gunpoint in the parking lot of a Target store in San Bruno last year was sentenced on Wednesday in San Mateo County Superior Court.

Dominique Jackson, 24, was sentenced to two years in state prison and was ordered to pay $11,000 in restitution to the victim, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

On April 14, Jackson pleaded no contest to felony robbery and admitted to possession of a deadly weapon.

Prosecutors said that on May 30, 2013, Jackson and co-defendant Jason King Jr., 25, pointed a gun and demanded the purse of a woman as she sat in her car in the parking lot of Target.

The purse contained $12,000 worth of jewelry. After taking the purse, the defendants fled in an Oldsmobile. The victim was able to get a partial license plate number, which helped police trace the car to King.

The same car was used that night in a robbery in Oakland and the next day, San Francisco police stopped the vehicle after a citizen told them the people in the car had just tried to rob him.

A search of the car revealed the victim's driver's license and two BB guns that looked like handguns, according to police.

In a separate hearing on Sept. 19, 2013, King was sentenced to two years in state prison and ordered to pay $11,000 in restitution to the victim.
