Two people were robbed in recent incidents in San Francisco’s Duboce Triangle and the nearby Mission district.

The first robbery occurred at 5:50 a.m. Sunday when three suspects ran up to a man at Church Street and Duboce Avenue and demanded his belongings. When the victim refused, one of the suspects produced a black, semi-automatic handgun. The victim then complied, and the suspects fled with the man’s cash to a waiting gold SUV with out-of-state license plates, Officer Carlos Manfredi, a police spokesman, said in a summary.

The 32-year-old victim was taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Manfredi didn’t say what the man’s injuries were.

The suspects were described only as three black males. One appeared to be 25. The ages of the other two weren’t known.

The second incident happened at 8:18 p.m. Sunday when a teenager approached a woman who was talking on her cellphone in the 100 block of Duboce, forced the phone from her hand, and fled, Manfredi said.

The woman, who’s 33, wasn’t injured.

The teen is described only as a black male who’s 16-17 years old.

No arrests have been made in either case. Anyone with information in the cases may call the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. People may also text a tip to TIP411.
