SAN FRANCISCO — Five people are in custody after a cellphone robbery led to a foot pursuit in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood in which a police officer shot at a suspect this morning, police Chief Greg Suhr said.
The robbery was reported around 6:30 a.m. near 225 Minerva St. in the city’s Oceanview neighborhood. The female victim was walking down the street with her smartphone when she was robbed at gunpoint, Suhr said.
Police used a GPS feature on the cellphone to track it to the Balboa Park BART station. A short time later, the phone was tracked to 28th and Church streets.
An officer responding to that area saw two people matching the description of two of the suspects involved in the robbery, Suhr said.
