Woman Deflects Robbery Attempt With Trick From TV

Dragland told KNTV that she got on a Bay Area Rapid Transit train Friday at the Daly City station, south of San Francisco, bound for her home across the bay in Dublin.

Dragland, 32, took a photo of the red ink message, which read, "There are 2 guns pointed at you now".

"Do not turn around until after you have left Civic Center", it warned her, "[and] you will live". There were about 15 other people in the train auto and no one else reported the incident, cops said. "Do not turn around until after you have left civic center + you will live", landed on her lap.

When an attempt to mouth the word "help" didn't work, Dragland chose to get creative and slumped to the side, "shaking and crying" to get the attention of the other passengers.

"I was terrified and then I started to be like, is somebody really going to shoot someone for a phone and a wallet?"

BART police said they will process more video from inside the train and at Powell Street and ask anyone with information to call BART police at 510-464-7040. I think it had something to do with watching a lot of 'Law & Order.' I think I saw that in an episode.

"So I was like, "if I fake a seizure, or fake that I'm passing out I'm not even not complying they could just think I'm scared and reacting", Ms Dragland said. Dragland suspected the culprit got off there.

"I was very impressed with myself", she added.

BART spent $1.42 million earlier this year to install working surveillance equipment after The Chronicle reported that 77 percent of cameras on the trains were decoys.
