Arrests made after teens robbed near Dolores Park

Several suspects were arrested after two teenagers were robbed near San Francisco’s Dolores Park early Sunday morning (April 1).

According to police, three Hispanic males in their 20s approached the victims, who are both 19, at 20th and Church streets at about 12:40 a.m. One of the suspects took out a knife and demanded the teens’ property. Another suspect assaulted one of the victims as all three suspects took their property before fleeing in a dark sedan, Officer Giselle Talkoff, a police spokeswoman, said. Police located two of the suspects and arrested them.

The teens suffered non-life threatening injuries but were not taken to a hospital.

A sweater, cellphones, IDs, and credit cards were taken in the incident.

Police have not released the names of the men who were arrested, and a description of the third man wasn’t available.

Officer Robert Rueca, a police spokesman, said that there were more than three suspects.

In response to an email from the Bay Area Reporter, Officer Rueca said, “Two of the arrested suspects are juveniles,” and he couldn’t release their names.

Rueca said, “The other suspects are adult males,” but he wasn’t immediately able to release their names.
