Lots of lost loot in San Francisco robberies

Three men were victimized in separate robberies in San Francisco overnight, police said.

The first robbery occurred in Visitacion Valley on Tuesday, cops said. A 22-year-old man was in the area of Velasco Avenue and Santos Street around 10 p.m. when he was held at gunpoint by a group of three men in their 20s. The crooks demanded his things and fled with the victim’s iPad, iPod, cellphone, paychecks and cash, police said.

About an hour later in the Sunset, three hoodlums of unknown age robbed a 24-year-old man at 46th Avenue and Vicente Street, cops said. One of the thugs threatened the victim with a knife while another threw him to the ground. They grabbed the victim’s backpack and fled. The victim also lost his cash, police said.

Just after midnight Wednesday, a 40-year-old man was set upon by two thugs in the Richmond. The victim was at Geary Boulevard and 23rd Avenue when one of the goons drew a gun and demanded his property. The two crooks took off with the victim’s cash and cellphone. The thieves were described as men in their 20s, cops said.
