Ingleside saw three incidents take place yesterday, two robberies and a shooting. 

Argument on Muni escalates into shooting

In the first incident, which took place at 1:51pm at Haas Playground at Addison and Farnum streets, two male suspects—described as 16 to 18 years of age— were arguing with two other young men around the same age and a 20-year-old woman, all while on a Muni bus.

The argument escalated after they all got off the bus, when one suspect pulled out a gun and shot at the trio. No one was injured, and the two fled on foot.

Armed man robs woman of cellphone 

In the second incident, a 22-year-old woman was approached from behind by a 40-year-old man at 4pm near Monticello and Holloway in Ingleside Terraces. The suspect grabbed her, held a gun against her, and demanded her cellphone. 

The victim complied, and he then ordered her to flee the scene. Uninjured, she ran away. 

Cellphone robbery on Muni

In the third incident, which took place around 7:55pm at Geneva and Mission streets, an 18-year-old man was robbed of his cellphone while on another Muni bus.

A young man—described as being between 18 and 21 years of age—knocked the victim's phone out of his hand, grabbed it from the floor, and then fled on foot with two other young men, all described as being in their late teens. 

No arrests were made.
