A suspect robbed and kidnapped a man last night before forcing him to commit a hit-and-run violation in the Outer Mission district, police have reported.

The incident started around 11:50 p.m. at Crocker Amazon Park, when a male suspect in his forties approached a 23-year-old man and demanded money. After brandishing a gun, the suspect forced the victim to drive them both to a bank machine.

On the way to the ATM, the victim's car struck another vehicle at Alemany Boulevard and Geneva Avenue, but the victim and suspect continued driving. Eventually, the suspect stole the man's phone and backpack before fleeing.

No injuries were reported, and the suspect has not been arrested.
