But when the victim went to sell the wristbands at about 5:10 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of 24th Avenue and Fulton Street in the city’s Richmond District, the suspects brandished a handgun and knife and ordered him to get into a light blue vehicle, according to police.

One suspect sat in the driver’s seat and drove around while another pointed a gun at the victim. The third suspect held a knife up to the victim, police said.

The suspects ordered the victim to hand over the concert wristbands and his money. The victim handed over the items and the suspects dropped him off on the street.
