The robbery was reported at about 3:55 p.m. Wednesday in the 300 block of Williams Avenue, police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, was about to get into his two-door, silver 2000 Chevrolet Camaro when he was approached from behind by a suspect who said “Break yo’ self!” and pulled out a black semiautomatic pistol from his waistband, Dangerfield said.

The suspect took a wallet and keys from the victim, then drove off in the Camaro. The victim was uninjured during the robbery, according to Dangerfield.

About half an hour later, officers found the victim’s unoccupied car nearby in the 300 block of Topeka Avenue, Dangerfield said.

The suspect had not been found as of this morning. He is described as a black man in his mid 20s who is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black beanie, black hooded sweatshirt and black pants, Dangerfield said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
