California Penal Code Section 211 defines Robbery as follows: Robbery is the felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, accomplished by means of force or fear.
California Penal Code Section 212 defines the element of fear as follows: The fear mentioned in Section 211 may be either:
1. The fear of an unlawful injury to the person or property of the person robbed, or of any relative of his or member of his family; or,
2. The fear of an immediate and unlawful injury to the person or property of anyone in the company of the person robbed at the time of the robbery.
At common law robbery was often defined as (1) the felonious taking (2) of the personal property of another (3) from the persons presence or person (4) by fear, force, violence, or intimidation (5) with the intent to permanently deprive that person of his/her property. California statutory law is similar to the common law definition.
