Home-invasion robbers hit Outer Richmond
Five armed men stormed an apartment in the outer Richmond District early Thursday morning in a home-invasion robbery.
According to San Francisco police, five men described only as black men in their 20s entered the building in the 500 block of 40th Avenue near Geary Boulevard some time before 2:50 a.m. Thursday. Armed with pistols, the robbers held eight victims at gunpoint.
The robbers took a cell phone, a tablet, laptops, a video-game console, cash, wallets, a camera and luggage, police stated. The victims, all in their 20s and 30s, included five men and three women.
Television station KTVU reports that all the victims are college students. One told KTVU that the robbers demanded marijuana, seemed to expect to find a large amount of it there and were upset that there wasn’t any in the home.
No one was injured in the robbery, and no suspects were arrested, according to police.
