Three armed robberies reported Tuesday in SF

Three men were robbed at gunpoint in separate incidents across San Francisco on Tuesday, police said.

A 22-year-old man was inside a car on Haight and Stanyan streets with three other young men when one of them pointed a revolver at him around 10:50 p.m., police said. Another suspect then put him in a chokehold while the third accomplice riffled through his pockets.

One man then pistol whipped the victim as he got out of the car, police said.

At some point, police arrived on the scene and arrested all three suspects in connection with the armed robbery.

Jamil Akim Alhark, 19, of Oakland, was arrested and booked into County Jail on suspicion of robbery, assault with deadly weapon, conspiracy and possession of stolen property, Officer Albie Esparza said.

Jordan Rajot Boone, 19, of San Leandro, was jailed on suspicion of robbery conspiracy and stolen property charges, Esparza said.

A 16-year-old male whose name has not been released was also booked on suspicion of robbery-related charges at the Juvenile Justice Center, Esparza said.

Officers recovered the victim’s cash, cellphone and shoes, police said. The victim had redness to his face as a result of the robbery, police said.

Police impounded the Nissan Altima they were in.

In a separate incident, a 19-year-old man was robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash in Chinatown.

Few details were released in the case, but police said the man was near Trenton Street and Pacific Avenue around 5:42 p.m. when an unknown suspect pulled out a handgun and robbed him of cash. He was uninjured.

Earlier in the day, a gas station in the Excelsior was held up by a man with a revolver, police said.

The unidentified man pretended to buy a soda at the gas station on the 4200 block of Mission Street around 9:10 a.m. but pointed a handgun at the clerk when he opened the cash register, police said.

The thief, described as about 40 to 45 years old, then took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register before fleeing on foot down Silver Avenue, police said.

The clerk, a 61-year-old man, was not injured, police said.
