A man and woman were robbed at gunpoint at 15th and Shotwell streets while walking home at 2:23 a.m. Thursday.

The victims, both in their 30s, were approached by two black males in their 20s, police said. One of the men pulled out a gun and demanded their valuables.The suspects then fled in a vehicle, with an undisclosed amount of money and property, where a third man was waiting. No one was injured in the incident, nor were any arrests made, police said.

Thursday’s robbery follows a similar occurrence on Monday, when three women were robbed at gunpoint at 20th and Folsom streets. The suspects of the two events do not match the same description, according to police.

  1. these events tend to cluster. not recently, but a while ago, I witnessed a girl get pummeled in the back of a muni car while other bus riders just sat and did nothing. it was horrific. ever since witnessing this malfunctioning in the social contract I have carried various miscellaneous weapons hoping that the very presence of such things will ward off any wrongdoers. hitherto, I have yet to be approached by any on the usual suspects, however, I have been on the other end of prolonged glares, and observed subtleties of aggressive posturing directed towards myself.

    good luck living in the mission.

  2. Just want to point out the original robbery (at 20th/Folsom) took place early Monday morning, not Tuesday.
