Man carjacked near Bernal Heights, robbed of cash in Tenderloin

A man was carjacked and forced to drain his bank account at gunpoint by two men in Bernal Heights on Saturday, police said Monday.

The 30-year-old victim was in the 400 block of Alemany Boulevard about 10 p.m. when he was forced at gunpoint to sit in the center console area of his own van while the armed suspect drove the victim and a second suspect to the Tenderloin, police said.

First, they took cash from the victim before stopping at an ATM and forcing him to withdraw more money.

The crooks then stopped at an ATM on Polk Street and the two suspects waited in the van while the victim withdrew yet more cash, police said. He came back to the van and handed his cash over to the suspects and got back into the van.

The suspects drove around for a few more hours before pushing the victim out of the van while it was still moving, police said. The victim was not injured.

The vehicle and suspects are still at large. The only description of the suspects was that they were men who appeared to be in their 20s.Bay Area NewsCarjackingCrimeCrime & CourtsRobberySan Francisco Police Department
