Robbery w/Gun -- 11:39pm. Noe St./Day St. Officers B. Ng and Rueca responded to a call of a robbery. The victim said he parked his vehicle and was walking to his house. The suspect approached the victim and told him to hand over his wallet. The victim gave the suspect his wallet. The suspect fled in a waiting vehicle.
Lt. Louis Cassanego took over the newsletter today and gave the following advice:
I would like to write about how you can aid in the capture of robbery suspects by just being vigilant in your neighborhoods. Most street robberies in the Ingleside District have a get away car involved. The victim hardly sees the car, because it is waiting around the corner from where the robbery occurred.

So, if you happen to see one or two subjects run around the corner to a waiting car and quickly jump in and then the car speeds off, you may have witnessed the tail end of a street robbery.

Try to remember the license plate, make, model, number of doors and the color of the car. I know that's a lot to ask, but the license plate is probably the most important item on the list. The description of the suspects is also helpful. You'll know something is amiss, when you see police cars suddenly saturating the area.

You can call the Non-Emergency number: (415)553-0123 with your information, or if you wish to be anonymous we have our "tip line": (415)587-8984.

These incidents are happening with alarming frequency. It seems to be a single set of young guys, two robbers and a driver. I am getting paranoid about walking with hard to replace identification documents (like my green card, which I am required to carry 'at all times' when I am in public). It is so frustrating not to have something we can do about it, anyone have a suggestion for what we could do as a community?
