The boys were walking near Keith Street and Quesada Avenue around 4:15 p.m. when five suspects approached, according to police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.

The boys were not injured in the robbery.

The suspect who took the MP3 player was described as a teenage boy who is black, about 6 feet tall, weighs about 160 pounds, has short, black hair and was last seen wearing a Hollister black sweatshirt and black pants, Esparza said.

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