Teen with gun arrested in Duboce Triangle robbery

San Francisco police arrested a 17-year-old boy Wednesday night for allegedly using a gun to rob a woman in the city’s Duboce Triangle neighborhood.

According to police, the April 20 incident started at 10:30 p.m. as the victim was walking on 14th Street near Noe Street. The suspect approached her with a “silver pistol and demanded [the victim’s] items,” Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary. The victim, 29, complied, and the suspect fled northbound on Noe “to an awaiting vehicle,” but he was arrested, Esparza said.

Police don’t typically release the names of juvenile defendants. The boy was described only as a Hispanic male. He had taken the victim’s purse, wallet, money, and phone. She wasn’t injured, according to Esparza.

Duboce Triangle residents have been expressing increasing concern about crime in the neighborhood. Park Station Captain John Sanford has recently boosted patrols in the area.
