SAN FRANCISCO—A 16 year-old and two others were arrested in connection to an armed robbery that occurred on Friday, March 17, around 2 p.m. on Amazon Street and Vienna.
Emerson Melendez, 26, Daniel Argueta, 18, and the teen were charged with robbery, gun possession and possession of stolen property.
The victim was walking down the street when two of the suspects robbed her at gunpoint. They took her rosary and purse before fleeing in a getaway vehicle.
When police arrived on the scene, the victim gave them a description of the suspects and the vehicle. Authorities were able to locate the getaway car which was a white Jetta on Silver Avenue in the Bayview District. Officials were able to arrest one suspect at that location, while the others fled the scene on foot.
A short pursuit ensued and during the chase one of the suspects threw a stolen loaded gun at officers. The suspects were apprehended and taken into custody.
The San Francisco Police Department officials were able to confirm that the gun was stolen from a home during a burglary that occurred back in February. The two suspects who fled were also charged with resisting arrest alongside the robbery and gun possession charges.
