Robbers chase woman on Nob Hill, steal laptop

A 20-year-old woman was walking in the lower Nob Hill area when two men approached her with a handgun and stole her belongings, police said.

The two men were driving a red four-door sedan when they spotted the victim walking near Sutter and Taylor streets around 4 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The suspect in the passenger seat exited the vehicle with a black handgun and threatened the victim to surrender her purse. The victim attempted to run away from the thieves but the second suspect chased her down, grabbed her purse and then pushed her to the ground before driving away.

The victim was uninjured but lost her wallet, cell phone and laptop computer.

No arrests have been made at this time.
