San Francisco police warn Corbett Heights residents about armed robbers

San Francisco police are warning about gun-toting robbers in the Corbett Heights neighborhood.

Two robberies occurred on 17th Street this past week, one on Thursday and the other Sunday, police at Park Station said.

In the first robbery, the thug used a silver pistol to rob a pedestrian’s cellphone and wallet at the intersection of Temple Street around 11:15 p.m. He was described as a black man in his late 20s standing 5 feet 6 inches, weighing 150 pounds and wearing light clothing.

The suspect fled in a green four-door car, possibly an Acura, and managed to lose cops during a chase, police said.

On Sunday, a goon with a black handgun robbed a motorist in a parked car of his keys, wallet and cellphone, police said. He was described as a black man in his late 20s to early 30s standing 5 feet 10-inches, weighing 165 pounds and wearing dark clothing.

Park Station Capt. Denis F. O’Leary says police patrols have been increased in the neighborhood.

Residents expressed concern about the robberies at a recent community meeting, O'Leary said.
