Four children and three adults were home when a man allegedly carried out an armed home invasion robbery of his brother’s residence in San Francisco’s Polk Gulch neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon, police said today.
Around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, two men knocked on the door of a home in the 1000 block of Geary Street, located between Polk Street and Van Ness Avenue, police said.
When a 25-year-old male resident opened the door to see who was there, two men forced their way inside, police said.
One of the suspects, described as a 29-year-old man, is allegedly the brother of the man who answered the door. The other suspect is described as a 30-year-old man, according to police.
The suspect pointed a handgun at his brother and then told his accomplice to leave the residence, according to police.
Officers said the armed suspect ordered everyone in the home to hand over their money.
Police said the victims complied and the suspect took off with the cash.
No injuries were reported among the brother who answered the door, two women in their 20s and four children between the ages of 4 and 10 years old who were inside the home at the time of the robbery, police said.
Police have not arrested any suspects in connection with the robbery as of this morning.
