A 55-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint Monday blocks away from the tourist draw that is Lombard Street’s twisted stretch on Russian Hill, according to police.
The 8:49 p.m. incident at Jones and Lombard streets began when a man in his mid 30s pulled out a handgun and demanded the woman’s property.
The gunman then fled to a waiting car with U.S. and foreign currency as well as a camera.
No arrests have been made in the case.
