South City police search for knife-wielding robber

South San Francisco police are searching for a suspect that robbed a man at knifepoint Friday afternoon.

The victim was sleeping in his car in the parking lot of Avalon Park when, according to police, he was awakened about 3:45 p.m. by the suspect who poked him in the arm with a knife.

The suspect demanded the victim's wallet, and after getting it, fled in a vehicle described as a faded green-colored older model Chevrolet Nova with two other people in the car, according to police.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 30s who is about 5-feet-10-inches tall with a slender build and wavy blond hair, police said. He was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the South San Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-8900.
