Two men used a handgun and a knife early Thursday morning (July 6) to rob a woman in San Francisco’s Castro district.

The 1:15 a.m. incident at Church at 18th streets started when the two suspects approached the woman and tried to take her purse, police said.

“A struggle ensued,” police said, but after the men “brandished their weapons” and demanded the woman give them her property, she complied. The suspects then fled north on Church.

The woman, who’s 25, and the 22-year-old man who was with her weren’t injured. Her purse, passport, cellphone, tablet, and credit cards were taken.

The suspects were described only as Hispanic males. One is 20 to 30 years old, and the other appeared to be 30.
