San Francisco police are seeking two suspects who stole a man’s car at gunpoint in the city’s Bayview District last weekend and then crashed it nearby, police said.
The carjacking was reported at about 6:15 p.m. Saturday in the 1300 block of Underwood Avenue, where the 26-year-old victim said he had been working on his car outside of his home, according to police.
The suspects approached and began screaming at him. One pulled out a revolver and pointed it at the victim while the other punched him in the face. The suspects then got into the victim’s car and drove away, police said.
The stolen vehicle was located afterward a few blocks away at Yosemite Avenue and Jennings Street, where it had been abandoned after striking a parked car, police said.
Officers searched the area for the suspects, believed to be two men in their early to mid 20s, but did not find them as of Monday, according to police.
Anyone with information about the case is asked 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.
