Treasure Island Photographer Mugged

A woman was robbed while taking photos on San Francisco’s Treasure Island on Monday evening, police said today.

The robbery was reported at 6:07 p.m. in the first block of Treasure Island Road.

The 37-year-old victim was taking pictures when a man came up from behind her, put a gun to her back and demanded that she hand over the camera, police said.

The victim complied and gave up the camera to the man, who fled into a waiting black sedan that had a female suspect inside. The suspects, believed to be in their 20s or 30s, fled and had not been found as of this morning, according to police.

The victim was not hurt in the robbery.

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