Delivery driver robbed at gunpoint of cash, pizza on Treasure Island

A pizza delivery driver robbed of his cash and two pizzas was among five victims in a string of armed robberies that spanned throughout The City late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, police said.

In the first incident, a man was filling his car at a gas station at 17th and South Van Ness streets in the Mission District at 10:40 p.m. when two male suspects pulled up to the gas station in a black four-door car, according to police.

One of the men got out of the car, pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded his belongings. The two suspects fled the gas station, but not before taking the man’s wallet and cash.

Early Wednesday morning, two women, ages 29 and 30, were walking home from BART at 12:11 a.m. on Joost Avenue and Acadia Street in the Sunnyside neighborhood when they were robbed by three males, two of which carried rifles.

Police said the three suspects walked past the two women at first, only to turn around and surround them. The group of men stole several items, including a cell phone, their cash, a backpack and a purse, before fleeing the scene on foot.

A pizza delivery man was the victim of the most recent armed robbery early Wednesday morning. Two male suspects approached the man while he was looking at his phone at 12:55 a.m. at Mason Court on Treasure Island.

One of the suspects brandished a handgun and demanded the delivery man’s cash, while the second took two pizzas from his vehicle. The duo fled the scene.

None of the victims reported any injuries. No arrests were made.
