Men robbed at gunpoint in Duboce Triangle incidents

Two men were robbed at gunpoint early Thursday morning in separate incidents in the Duboce Triangle area, according to police.

In the first incident, two men who appeared to be in their 20s approached the victim, 37, just after 1 a.m. at 15th and Noe streets. One suspect pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded his property. The victim complied and handed over his backpack, laptop, and cash, said police. At least one of the suspects fled on foot south on Noe toward Market Street.

The second robbery occurred nearby just after 1 a.m. and involved two suspects. In this incident, a man exited a vehicle and approached the victim, 59. He then pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded his property. The victim complied, giving up his wallet and cash. The suspect, who appeared to be between the ages of 25 and 30, got back into the vehicle, which was last seen fleeing east on Duboce toward Church, according to police. A description of the second suspect wasn’t available.

Neither of the victims were injured.
