Authorities are investigating after a group of teenagers were robbed at gunpoint in an unincorporated area of Redwood City early Saturday morning.

The incident occurred just after 12:30 a.m. in the 1800 block of Hull Avenue.

According to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, a woman approached a group of teenagers, when she brandished a gun at them.

Officials said that one of the victims was then grabbed by the neck and was forced to the ground. The suspect then confronted another victim and took his wallet.

Deputies said the woman fled the area in a silver four-door vehicle.
