SAN FRANCISCO—Officers from the San Francisco Police Department are looking for two men who robbed a mother, who had her one-year-old daughter with her at the time, at gunpoint in San Francisco on Friday, March 3.
The robbery occurred at around 10:26 p.m. while the victim was parking her car in the garage of her apartment complex on Florida Street, noted the SFPD in a press release.
The woman’s one-year-old daughter was in a car seat in the back of the car. As the woman got out of her vehicle, she was met by two men. One of the men pointed a gun at her and demanded the vehicle.
The second suspect, who was unarmed, opened the back door and forced the baby out of the car seat. That’s when the suspects noticed the woman’s backpack on the passenger seat. The backpack contained the victim’s personal items and money inside. The suspects grabbed the backpack, gave the baby to her mother, and fled the scene.
According to the police, the victim is a single mom and a U.S. Army Veteran. She had just taken out money from the bank so she could buy a birthday cake and decorations for her daughter’s upcoming birthday.
Her wallet was recovered, but the money was gone. Both suspects are described as Hispanic males, between 20-30 years old. They were also wearing dark-colored clothing.
At approximately, 10:58 PM, a carjacking occurred on the 600 block of Hampshire Street. Inspectors are investigating whether the suspects in both incidents are connected.
Investigators are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact the San Francisco Police Department anonymously at (415) 575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.
