A 68-year-old man driving near 21st and Capp streets was robbed at gunpoint at 2:50 a.m. on Wednesday after pulling over to talk to a man standing on the sidewalk near the intersection. The man is estimated to be between the ages of 27 and 30, and was alone as the driver stopped his vehicle, but was quickly joined by a 23-year-old woman armed with a handgun.
After approaching the victim’s vehicle, the woman brandished the gun and demanded that the 68-year-old man hand over his wallet, four credit cards, and cash. The victim complied, and then managed to drive away from the scene without being harmed. The suspects fled the scene together on foot, and no arrests have been made.
Home Invasion Thwarted by Resident
At 7 a.m. on Tuesday, a 58-year-old man thwarted an attempted burglary in his own home near 15th and Valencia streets after waking up to suspicious noises. The victim reported that a 5-foot-7-inch man in his 40’s wearing a light color shirt and shorts, glasses, and a white baseball cap, climbed up the building’s scaffolding and opened a front window, through which he then entered the residence. Once inside, the would-be burglar was confronted by his victim, who then escorted him out of the building. The burglar managed to flee the area before police arrived.
Suspects Charged in June Homicide
Two more men have been charged with murder in the June 5 stabbing of 55-year-old Larry Teevy at the 16th and Mission Street BART Plaza. The arrests of brothers Daniel and Header Cauich followed the arrest of 27-year-old Jose Poot in June. All three have been charged with murder, assault with a deadly weapon and assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, the SF Examiner reports.
Teevy died from multiple stab wounds to the torso during an early morning brawl that had erupted at the BART plaza. Daniel Cauich was booked earlier this week and charged on the same counts as Poot, while his brother Header had previously been arrested and faced the same charges.
