2 robbed in Duboce Triangle incidents

Two men were robbed recently in separate incidents in San Francisco’s Duboce Triangle area.

The latest robbery occurred at about 10:20 p.m. Sunday, March 26, when two men approached the 27-year-old victim at Steiner and Duboce streets and brandished a handgun, police spokesman Officer Robert Rueca said. They demanded the victim give them his property, and he complied.

The two suspects joined a third suspect and they fled on foot in an unknown direction with the victim’s cash, Rueca said.

The victim wasn’t injured.

The first two suspects were described as black 20-year-old males. No description was available for the third suspect.

The other robbery started at about 4 a.m. Friday, March 24 at Church and Market streets, where the victim was standing at a bus stop, Rueca said.

Two suspects approached the 73-year-old victim, and as one asked the victim for a cigarette, the other “pulled him to the ground and took his backpack,” according to Rueca.

The victim’s backpack, cash, and cellphone were taken. He was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspects, who were described as white males aged 20 to 30, “fled in an unknown direction,” Rueca said.
