 Police in South San Francisco apprehended an alleged armed robber  after he attacked a man in a parking lot and forced his way into the man’s home early Saturday morning. Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery in progress at a home in the 700 block of El Camino Real at around 3:30 a.m., according to the South San Francisco Police Department. Arriving officers found a man holding down another man armed with a .45-caliber handgun in the bedroom, police said. The suspect, later identified as Brian O’Rourke, allegedly attempted to rob the victim at gunpoint in a parking lot in front of his residence. The victim temporarily escaped and ran into his home, which at the time was occupied by two adult females and two children.  O’Rourke followed the victim into his home, where the struggle between the two men continued in the bedroom. The victim managed to hold O’Rourke down until police arrived and took him into custody. O’Rourke, who works at a bakery, was booked into San Mateo County jail and booked for armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, child endangerment and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.
