Man holds his own family at gunpoint in Sunset district home

A 37-year-old man allegedly held up his own family at gunpoint and stole cash from them in the Sunset district Monday, police said.

Egan Solmiano Hernandez of San Francisco allegedly held his family hostage in the home he shares with them in the 1900 block of 41st Avenue, Officer Albie Esparza said. The three victims were two men aged 44 and 49 and one 84-year-old woman.

At some point, one of the family members was able to call police.

Police responded to the scene about 6:28 p.m. and ordered the suspect out of the house. He complied without incident, Esparza said.

Hernandez was booked on charges of robbery, false imprisonment, elder abuse, brandishing a weapon and use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, Esparza said.
