Man, Woman Tied up During Home-Invasion Robbery in San Francisco: Police

Two suspects are being sought after a man and woman were tied up during a home-invasion robbery in San Francisco, police said.

The incident was reported at 2 a.m. Tuesday on the 900 block of Baker Street, near Alamo Square.

One of the victims arrived home and was approached by two unknown male suspects, who were armed with a handgun. One of the suspects pointed the gun at the victim after they opened the door and was tied up. The second victim, a landlord in a different apartment, was also tied up, police said.

The 26-year-old woman, who did not want to be identified, said a masked man put a gun to her head and ordered her upstairs.

"There was a guy, and he grabbed me, threw me to the ground. The lights were off," she said. "He was like, 'Get upstairs.' But I was so freaked out; I couldn't even stand. The gun was to my head."

She said the man tried to get into her apartment butgave up and forced her to go to her landlord's apartment, where she found him tied up.

"They tied me up, mouth, arms, legs," the woman said. "(The landlord) was completely tied up to the chair."

The suspects took the first victim's money, cell phone and fled the scene.

No injuries were reported, and an investigation is ongoing.
