The home invasion robbery was reported at 1:58 p.m. at the home in the 2000 block of 45th Avenue.

The 31-year-old victim had left the door to his house open, and two suspects entered, pulled out a gun, and ordered the man to lie on the floor, according to police.

The suspects then ransacked the house, taking an iPod and guitar before fleeing. They had not been found as of Monday, police said.

The victim was not injured during the robbery.

    why on earth would you leave your door open. It’s like telling the thieves, come on in, and take things.
    It’s not safe in any neighborhood with your door unlocked and open.

    @ Kathleen – it’s not safe anywhere in San Francisco anymore! I live alone and I even lock my bathroom door every time I’m in it.
    I always see people parked their car in the driveway to unload their groceries etc. with the garage door wide open and they are up in the house! People need to realise that this city is not what it used to be, open, safe and friendly!
