Tonight our kidsitter witnessed (thank goodness from a distance) a mugging that occurred at gunpoint on the corner of 24th and Chattanooga. She was too far away to see any distinguishing characteristics besides the fact that there were two tall hooded men pointing a gun at another man on this corner. The muggers escaped down Chattanooga onto Jersey St. before the police arrived.According to the Mission Police District newsletter, this happened around 7:50pm on January 12th. But there is some good news: "Two citizens were robbed at gunpoint. Officers Bernal & Margreiter broadcast the suspect descriptions and possible location. Sergeant Burke and Officers Hui. Ferreira, Acosta, Norris, Gray, & Gonzalez located and arrested the two robbers, and recovered the victims’ property."
PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL TO STAY ALERT TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES AND CALL THE POLICE FOR ANYTHING OR ANYONE WHO LOOKS SUSPICIOUS.

Crime Beat: Armed Robbery
Gwen sent us the anecdote below preceded by this note: "Please put the word out for people to keep their devices put away and their eyes open right now. There's definitely a crime increase in Noe Valley. I've heard of several other instances and there may be more I haven't heard of."
