Police Seek Help In Identifying SF Western Addition Robbery Suspects

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – San Francisco police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects in a robbery in the city’s Western Addition neighborhood in July that was caught on surveillance video.

The robbery was reported on July 5 near Laguna and Cleary streets.

Two suspects pistol-whipped and robbed a victim at gunpoint before fleeing in a newer-model silver Dodge Charger with a white rag behind the rear headrest, according to police.

One suspect is described as a black male who was wearing a black jacket, a white shirt, blue jeans and white shoes, and was armed with a gun. The second suspect, also a black male, was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, jeans and dark shoes, police said.

A third suspect was driving the Dodge and also remains at large.

The video is being made available through the Police Department’s new crime-fighting tool called “The Line-Up,” in which the public is encouraged to help solve cold case files by watching video footage of crimes online.
