A woman riding a BART train pretended to have a seizure after another woman approached her and gave her a threatening note announcing a robbery, Yes I’m Right reports.
Oakland resident Julie Dragland, 32, was riding a Dublin-bound BART train when the suspect sat behind her and handed her the note.
“There are 2 guns pointed at you now. If you want to live hand back your wallet + phone NOW + do not turn around and be descreet,” the note read. “Do not turn around until after you have left Civic Center + you will live.”
Dragland attempted to get a fellow passenger’s attention, then she acted like she’s having a seizure.
She later said that the idea came to mind after watching several police dramas on TV. Dragland also said she won’t let the scary encounter stop her from riding BART trains.
The police said there were around 15 other people in the train car and none of them ever reported the incident.
