Two teens are suspected of robbing a 23-year-old man with an airsoft gun near a federal bank in the Financial District late Thursday, police said.
The 16-year-old boys allegedly confronted the man near the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on the first block of Spear Street around 11:44 p.m., police said. One of the boys hid the fake gun underneath his shirt and pointed it at the victim, demanding the man’s belongings.
The man complied. Two U.S. Federal Reserve Police officers had seen the robbery, however, and detained the boys until San Francisco police arrived.
The boys were arrested but their identities will not be released since they are minors.
The man was given back his wallet and cellphone.
