Robberies, shootout in Castro

Two people were robbed and a shootout occurred Sunday night and early Monday morning in San Francisco’s Castro district, according to police.

The first robbery took place when a woman was walking home at about 10 p.m.

The woman, 31, was in the 300 block of Church Street, near 15th Street, when two other women approached her, pulled her to the ground, and stole her purse, which contained her wallet, cash, keys, and credit cards, police said. The suspects, who appeared to be between the ages of 18 and 30, then got into a vehicle that fled north on Church.

Then, at 11:30 p.m., a man got into an argument with two other men in the 2300 block of Market Street, near Noe Street. The suspects, who are 26, punched the victim, stole his cellphone, and ran away, police said.

Finally, at about 1 a.m. Monday, police responded to a shot spotter activation at 17th and Church streets. Witnesses said that people in two vehicles had been shooting at each other before fleeing south on Church and then east on 18th Street. Casings were recovered at the scene.

The victims in the robbery cases were left with non-life threatening injuries, according to police. No one was injured in the shootout.

No arrests have been reported in any of the incidents.
