Police responded to two armed carjackings Saturday in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood and in the Excelsior District.

The first was reported around 10:15 a.m. after a 37-year-old man driving in the area of California and Broderick streets was approached by a man with a gun, police said.

The suspect pointed the gun at the driver and ordered him to get out of his car and hand over his belongings. The man complied, giving the suspect his wallet and cell phone.

The suspect was last seen driving west on California Street and had not been arrested as of Monday morning, police said. No detailed description has been released.

In the second incident, a 77-year-old man was getting out of his car in the 500 block of Madrid Street around 7 p.m. when two male suspects in their late teens approached him and asked for directions.

When the man started to give directions, the suspects took his keys and attacked and threatened him, before taking his car and driving away, police said.

No weapon was seen during the incident, but the suspects led the victim to believe they were armed with a handgun.

The suspects were last seen driving south on Madrid, and no arrest had been reported as of Monday morning.

The victim was injured in the attack but refused medical attention, police said.
