Gun-toting goons bagged after spree

Cops put an early end to this robbery spree.

Two men in their 20s were robbed of their cell phones and iPods in separate incidents Monday night by the same group of goons, cops said.

At around 10:30 p.m., a 28-year-old man in the area of Laguna Honda Boulevard and Woodside Avenue was approached by two suspects, ages 17 and 20, who demanded his goods, police said.

The hooligans drew their guns on the victim, who turned over his property. They fled in a 2003 blue Mazda Tribute driven by a 30-year-old man, cops said.

Later, just before midnight at Broderick and Fulton streets, goons that matched the description of the earlier robbery approached a 20-year-old man and demanded his cell phone and iPod, police said.

The victim complied after being held at gunpoint and the criminals fled in the same blue Mazda, cops said.

Police later caught up with the crooks and arrested them for armed robbery. Neither victim was injured during the incidents, cops said.
