Suspects sought in South City robbery

South San Francisco police are searching for two suspects who allegedly attempted to rob a pair of youths Friday night.

The suspects approached the victims about 8:10 p.m. in a parking lot on the 2500 block of Westborough Boulevard and demanded their cell phones and money, police said.

One suspect motioned toward his waistband to possibly pull out a weapon before a vehicle entered the parking lot and interrupted the suspects from robbing the victims, police said. However, the victims said they saw no weapon on either of the suspects.

The suspects fled northbound in the parking lot toward Baldwin Hills Court, according to police.

Both suspects were described as black men between 16 and 18 years old, police said. One of the suspects is about 5 feet 11 inches tall and 160 pounds with a medium build, and was wearing a red shirt, black beanie, and dark baggy jeans.

The second suspect is about 5 feet 5 inches and 130 pounds with a medium build, and was wearing a white-hooded sweater and dark jeans, according to police.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the South San Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-8900.
