California Penal Code §211 makes it unlawful for any person to take personal property that is in the possession of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, accomplished by force or fear.

Several different elements must be met before a person can be convicted of robbery.

One element is that the personal property must be in the possession of another. The person from whom the property is stolen must have actual possession of the item.
