Two Teens Suspected of Robbing Sunset Liquor Store at Gunpoint

Two suspects robbed a man and a woman working at a liquor store at gunpoint in San Francisco’s Sunset District on Saturday night, police said.

The robbery occurred at Sunset Strip Liquors, located at the intersection of Judah Street and 31st Avenue, according to Janice, a co-owner of the store who declined to give her last name.

Janice said the store’s other owner and his wife were working when two male suspects came into the store shortly before 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

They placed two bottles of alcohol on the counter as if they were going to purchase them, but when the cashier asked to see their IDs, one of the suspects brandished a black handgun and pointed it at the register.

Police said the other suspect forced the other victim to the back of the store. The cashier handed over money and the suspects took the liquor as well.

The two suspects, described by police as possibly being 16 or 17 years old, then fled into a dark-colored vehicle.

Police said they have not arrested anyone in connection with the robbery.

Janice said the suspects were apparently masked and wearing plastic gloves during the robbery.

She said the store is located in a good neighborhood and that they hadn’t experienced a robbery in more than a decade.
