Update: Six armed robberies of students at four Oak Cliff schools

The parent of a student robbed at gunpoint outside of an Oak Cliff middle school last week says his son was afraid of returning to school.

“They pointed a gun on him, told him to get on the floor and to give them his phone,” Gerardo Mendoza told KXAS. “Just for him to be in a situation like that, no kid should go through.”

The Dallas Police and Dallas ISD now report six armed robberies of students at four Oak Cliff schools in the past two weeks. Two of the robberies were at Stockard. The others happened at Kimball and Roosevelt high schools and at Zan Wesley Holmes Jr. Middle School.
