COMING UP: While getting off the freeway to head to a story... a different story came to us. A man ran up to our news vehicle asking for help. He said he had just been robbed at gunpoint and his truck was stolen. Story at 11 @ABC30 pic.twitter.com/dj05mWwKRh— Cory James (@CoryABC30) February 24, 2018
Neria says the suspect took his keys and took off with his light blue 1992 GMC Sierra pickup truck. With no phone to call the police, the 26-year-old started running down the street, asking people nearby for help.
Minutes after our news team got off Highway 180 at the Fulton and Van Ness exit, heading to a story down the road, they were stopped by Neria running towards their news vehicle, frantically asking for help.
After giving him a phone to call 911, Fresno police showed up and within an hour, officers found his truck, a truck Neria is glad to have back.
