14-Year-Old Robbed At Gunpoint In San Francisco’s Japantown

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — Police released descriptions Monday of two suspects who robbed a 14-year-old San Francisco girl at gunpoint at a bus stop in the Japantown area Sunday morning.

Police said the men—one believed to be in his late teens and the other in his 20s—approached the girl around 6:50 a.m. at Geary Boulevard and Laguna Street, near the Japan Center shopping center.

The girl had been waiting at the northeast corner of the intersection for a bus to attend an extracurricular activity for school, police said.

The younger of the two suspects told the girl, “Show me the money,” while the other brandished a silver revolver with a brown handle, police said.

The men then fled with the girl’s handbag, jewelry and cell phone, running west on Geary Boulevard, according to police.

The younger suspect was described by police as a black male wearing a baseball cap, a black jacket and dark blue jeans. The older suspect was described as a black man wearing an orange San Francisco Giants baseball cap, a silver Giants rain jacket, blue jeans and a white shirt.

The girl was not injured, and no arrests have been made in the case.

    What was a 14 year old child doing at a bus stop at 6;30 on a Sunday morning? Yes, I realize that she was waiting for a bus.

      It’s 6:30am, not 2amm. It’s daylight.

  • jerry

    It’s not daylight at 6:30am. You must sleep in ’til noon.

    • Ty

      Is there curfew at 6AM? I doubt it…

  • I'm a Fool For the City

    Doesn’t make a difference what time it was nor there color.The PUKES that robbed them need to be shot,before they breed or have the chance to commit another crime.A little lead can go along way,44 mag put there heads together will drop at least ten,mulch them up and continue on,I’ll bet crime starts droppong fast.

  • SF Irish Rebel

    can we just please take the PUNKS out to the Pacific ocean and dump them?

  • Masked Vigilante

    I’m a Fool for the City, SF Irish Rebel and jerry….I agree, them punks need to be dealt with before they breed or grow older and bolder. I just can’t wait to read an article where it says, “A group of thugs torn into pieces by an unidentified individual.” Jerry, you’re right as well, sadly, I wouldn’t let a 14 year old go out that early or when it’s still dark, but, you can’t blame the victim dude…that’s dumb.

      The ‘perps’ are basically immune from accountability for their actions by the ‘quality of life’ crimes’ assumptions of our D.A. and a culture of ‘criminals are victims’ that’s held over from the Marxists still in our city offices. “Too many young black men in prison and jail time only criminalizes them even further.”….so….

    It’s still dark out at 6:30 am. Maybe she was on her way to church. Sad part is if they are caught they probably won’t be prosecuted. Any other County they would do some time. I was born in SF but hope I don’t die here. The crime gets worst evey day.

  • reggie

    it’s a shame that any fool can have a gun

  • Dawg

    How much money can a chicken sh#t punk get from a 14 year old child?

  • Da Dude

    why didn’t the girl carrying a gun while waiting for a bus?

  • 2nd Amendment lover

    These pooh-flinging bucks should be caught and shot on sight for robbing an innocent girl. Typical behavior from pooh flingers.

  • JaneQPublic

    Hmmm…..the perps were young, black males, on foot, and it was still dark at a very early time on a Sunday morning when there is very little traffic. I’m guessing they were familiar with the area and are from the nearby neighborhood (Wester Addition), and SOMEBODY there knows who they are….
