Guns pulled in separate incidents in Western Addition and Bayview

Two men were robbed at gunpoint in unrelated incidents across The City this week.

In the Bayview, a 28-year-old man was walking down Dartmouth Street at 9:31 p.m. Thursday when a man pressed a handgun against his forehead, police said.

The thief backed him up against a car and took his wallet, backpack and phone as an accomplice watched. The two men then fled the scene on foot.

The day before in the Western Addition, a 36-year-old man walked outside of a residence near Fell and Broderick streets to find someone rummaging a toolbox he had left on the ground around 3 p.m. The man was working at the residence, moving trash in and out of the building.

When he confronted the 20- to 25-year-old man, he was flashed a handgun. The victim backed away as the man fled into a waiting automobile with toolbox and tools in tow.

Police said another suspect was driving the vehicle.
