Man Selling Outside Lands Wristbands Kidnapped, Robbed by Armed Suspects

Three armed male suspects kidnapped and robbed a 27-year-old man who was attempting to sell them wristbands for the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Francisco on Saturday evening, police said today.

The victim had arranged on Craigslist to sell the concert wristbands to one of the suspects, police said.

But when the victim went to sell the wristbands at about 5:10 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of 24th Avenue and Fulton Street in the city’s Richmond District, the suspects brandished a handgun and knife and ordered him to get into a light blue vehicle, according to police.

One suspect sat in the driver’s seat and drove around while another pointed a gun at the victim. The third suspect held a knife up to the victim, police said.

The suspects ordered the victim to hand over the concert wristbands and his money. The victim handed over the items and the suspects dropped him off on the street.

The suspects fled in the vehicle, possibly a Hyundai, and have not yet been arrested, police said.

The victim suffered a cut to his hand, but no life-threatening injuries, according to police.
