Two armed robberies reported to SF police

Two men were robbed at gunpoint in separate incidents in San Francisco early Wednesday, including a man who was pistol whipped in the Mission.

The Mission robbery happened in a hallway near Mission and 16th streets around 2:45 a.m., police said. A 29-year-old man was attacked and robbed by two men armed with a Taser stun gun and black handgun.

After he was struck with the handgun, the injured man left the scene and flagged down passing police.

Officers found the suspected robbers, a 34-year-old man and 51-year-old man, and arrested them.

The wounded man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a laceration to his face, police said.

The suspects’ names have not been released by police.

Then in Nob Hill just before 4 a.m., a 58-year-old man walked into a business and had a handgun pointed at his chest by an unknown man standing to his side, police said.

The gunman demanded the man’s lunch bag, which he handed over, before fleeing from the business on Pacific Avenue and Mason Street into a waiting white vehicle.

The suspect vehicle then traveled away eastbound on Pacific Avenue. The suspect is described as a man in his 20s or 30s wearing a black hoodie. The gun was silver with a black handle.

The victim was uninjured.
