“Someone just tried to rob me "at gunpoint" on bart. they sat behind me and dropped this note into my lap,” she wrote. The post includes a photo of the note.
“There are 2 guns pointed at you now,” it reads. “If you want to live hand back your wallet + phone NOW + do not turn around and be descreet. Do not turn around until after you have left civic center + you will live.”

In a subsequent tweet, she writes that, “I pretended to have a seizure so that other people on the train would pay attention and in the commotion, the person got off the train.”
