Tuesday late at night, a man and a woman were held at gunpoint and robbed.
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was coming back to his apartment on Baker Street in the Anza Vista neighborhood around 2 in the morning.
He explained that when he got home, the front gate was left open and the lights were not turning on. He “thought it was strange,” but he did not think much of it.
It was so dark and he could barely see anything, but he went to fix the lock since he is the owner of the apartment building. While he was attempting to work on the lock, two masked men ran up on him and held him at gunpoint. They taped his hands together and taped his mouth as well.
He was held at gunpoint and ordered to go up to his apartment by the two men. They told him they “[were] going to go through [his] apartment.”
When they got into the apartment they started to ransack everything.
A few minutes later, they heard someone else coming into the building. The victim said, “They ran down and grabbed her at the gate and then dragged her up into my apartment and duct taped her feet, her hands, and her mouth.”
They held the woman hostage and claimed they would shoot her so that the man would tell them where all his valuables were in the house.
The robbers stole his wallet, phone, watches, and car keys and quickly escaped before the police arrived.
After they left, he took off the duct tape on him as well as his neighbor’s and dialed 911 for help.
The cops claimed that his neighborhood is a quiet and safe place and that robberies like this do not happen here. A traffic scanner had located the robbers on Anzavista Avenue, however, the police have not caught them yet.
They believe that the man was a target and warned people in San Francisco to be careful of their surroundings.
