Man Robbed at Gunpoint Follows Suspect to Public Place, Reclaims his Property

A 25-year-old man who was robbed at gunpoint in downtown San Francisco on Thursday night followed the perpetrator to a public place where he successfully managed to reclaim his property, police said.

The suspect, described as a man in his late 20s to early 30s, approached the victim near the intersection of Larkin and Fern streets around 11:40 p.m., according to officers.

Police said the suspect pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun and took the victim’s wallet and cellphone before fleeing the area, police said.

The victim, who was uninjured, followed the suspect to a crowded public place and then confronted him.

Police said the suspect, who has not yet been identified or arrested, gave the victim back his wallet and cellphone.

      You should consider not posting your murder fantasies on the internet. It establishes premeditation.

        Those are not “fantasies” …… ask the thug who tried to attack me on the USC campus how he now takes a dump! I’m sure he enjoyed having a tube stuck into him for that purpose. That suction pump must feel good.
