1 Arrested In Brazen Home Invasion Robbery In SF’s Bayview; 2 At Large
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — One person was in custody and two others remained at large after a home invasion in San Francisco’s Bayview District Monday morning, a police sergeant said.
Officers responded to a report of a home invasion robbery that had just occurred about 12:15 a.m. in the 1600 block of Palou Street, Sgt. Dennis Toomer said.
An investigation revealed that a female coerced a resident to open his residential front gate, Toomer said.
When the gate opened, two men rushed in and forced the victim back into the home where a struggle ensued, and the neighbors called the police, according to Toomer.
Toomer said the victim suffered a stab wound in the struggle. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
One of the male suspects attempted to exit the home through a first floor window in the rear of the home, but jumping out, he injured his leg and shortly after was arrested, Toomer said.
A handgun was confiscated from the suspect, Toomer said.
He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries.
The two other suspects remained at large.
The female, whose age was unknown, stands 5 feet 6 inches tall and was last seen wearing all black clothing.
The man, believed to be between 45 and 55 years old, was described as 6 feet tall, about 200 pounds and was seen wearing all black clothing. He was also believed to be armed.
It was unknown if anything was taken in the robbery, Toomer said.
Anyone with information about the robbery was asked to call San Francisco police anonymously at (415) 515-4444 or text a tip to TIP 411, with “SFPD” in the header.
