Bernal Heights man robbed at gunpoint in his home

A Bernal Heights resident who made the unfortunate mistake of answering his door Monday was robbed by two suspects at gunpoint.

At about 9:30 p.m., the victim heard some knocks on the door of his apartment in the 100 block of Highland Avenue, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

At the door was a black male, who spoke with the victim and distracted him while a second man, an Asian male, entered through the unit’s rear door. While the victim was talking to the man on the doorstep, the second suspect approached him from behind, pointed a gun at him and demanded cash, police said.

The two robbers then fled through the rear door on foot.

No arrests have been made, and police are investigating the case.
