Pistol-packing robbers stuff man in trunk in Bayview

A man was pistol-whipped and locked inside the trunk of his car Tuesday after being robbed by gun-toting goons in the Bayview district, police said.

Luckily, the newer model four-door sedan’s trunk could be unlocked from the inside, enabling the 46-year-old to free himself and call police after the two thieves fled with his cash and cellphone.

The robbery happened about 4:45 p.m., police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said, after the victim parked his car in the 3000 block of Ingalls Street.

When the victim got out, Shyy said, three males in their late teens or early 20s suddenly appeared and pointed a gun at the man. After the victim told them his money was in the trunk, Shyy said, the goons pistol-whipped him, knocking him to ground, and swiped his keys.

They robbed him, told him to get in the trunk and then closed it, Shyy said.

“The victim got out by pulling on a latch in the interior of the trunk,” the police spokesman said.

One suspect reportedly fled on foot while the other rode off on a bicycle. No arrests have been reported. The victim suffered a cut to his forehead and a swollen nose.
