Victim dragged 100 feet by car in Oakland after being robbed of laptop



PITTSBURGH - Police said the victim of a robbery in Oakland Tuesday night was not only robbed, but then hit and dragged by the suspect's car.

Investigators said the incident happened around 8 p.m. near the intersection of North Craig and Bayard streets.

Police said they arrested 56-year-old Donald Boyd and charged him with robbery, criminal conspiracy and several other charges.

Investigators said Boyd and another man robbed 26-year-old Josh Moalemi while he was walking in the parking lot of a gas station. Police said Moalemi tried fighting Boyd and the other man off, but they were able to get away with his laptop computer.

According to police, Moalemi was dragged about 100 feet and suffered a minor leg injury.

Investigators said Moalemi used his iPhone to take a photo of Boyd's license plate, which helped police make a quick arrest.

“I took all of my credit cards out of my purse. If they get me, they aren’t going to have anything to get,” Marcy Walls, who works in Oakland, said.

Authorities said they’re still looking for the other man who was with Boyd.

Moalemi was taken to an area hospital with a leg injury. His condition has not been released.
