Within Minutes, 2 Armed Robberies In Duboce Triangle

In separate incidents late last night in Duboce Triangle, two people were robbed by men armed with a handgun.

According to today's recap from the San Francisco Police Department, the robberies reportedly occurred within 60 seconds of each other, approximately four to five blocks apart.

A police spokesperson told Hoodline that all times cited in crime reports are estimates offered by victims. As a result, it's unclear whether the incidents were related, despite their close proximity.

The first robbery occurred at 1:05am near the corner of 15th and Noe streets when two male suspects in their twenties approached a 37-year-old man who was on foot before brandishing a handgun and demanding his property.

After the man complied, the suspects fled on foot, heading southbound on Noe towards Market Street.

In the second incident, which took place at 1:06am approximately a third of a mile away near the intersection of Sanchez and Duboce, a suspect between 25 and 30 years old got out of an undescribed vehicle and approached a 59-year-old man before pointing a gun at him.

After ordering the victim to hand over his valuables, the suspect returned to his car and fled eastbound on Duboce Street towards Church Street. 

No arrest was made in either incident.

Anyone who has information about either of these robberies is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
