A man was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday night on 24th Street near South Van Ness Avenue, police said.
The victim, a 40-year-old man, was walking when two suspects, described as men between the ages of 18 and 25, approached him. One suspect snatched the victim’s phone from his hand. At the same time, the second suspect lifted up his shirt, showing the victim a handgun tucked in his waistband.
One of the suspects took the man’s wallet from his pocket and then threw his phone on the ground, according to the police report.
Both suspects ran to an unknown vehicle and fled.
The incident happened at 10:15 p.m. Tuesday.
