The three suspects made it clear they were serious. One had a handgun, two had knives – all were pulled out to intimidate two victims at 15th and Mission streets at 11 p.m. Monday evening. The suspects demanded the man and woman hand over all they had – a purse, watch, passport, money, work permits and cards.
The suspects fled and no arrests have been made.
In a separate incident just after midnight at 19th and South Van Ness streets, two suspects – one with a handgun – robbed two 21-year-old men at gun point. One of the suspects pointed the gun at the victims while the other searched their pockets where he found – and kept – a smart phone, wallet, credit cards and cash.
