Thieves steal camera, computer equipment at gunpoint in Outer Richmond

Two people were robbed at gunpoint as they unloaded their car in a quiet part of San Francisco’s Outer Richmond District Tuesday night, police said Wednesday.

The robbery occurred at 45th Avenue and Clement Street, near the San Francisco VA Medical Center, around 10 p.m. as the victims, a man and woman in their 30s, were gathering their belongings from the trunk of their car, police said.

Two male suspects in their mid to late 20s approached the victims from behind. One of them pointed a handgun at the man and demanded they hand over their belongings.

The suspects took cash, camera equipment, a tablet computer and a driver’s license and passport and then fired a shot in the air before fleeing the scene, police said.

The victims were not injured in the robbery.

No arrest had been reported as of this morning, police said.
