Two men were robbed and had their van stolen at gunpoint outside their home in San Francisco’s Excelsior District on Wednesday afternoon, police said today. The carjacking and robbery was reported at 4:07 p.m. in the 200 block of Athens Street. The men, ages 63 and 34, had just arrived home and parked the white Ford van and were walking up the steps to their home when the younger man went back to move the van, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

As the man was in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, two suspects approached with handguns and demanded his property, Esparza said. The victim handed over a cellphone, wallet and car keys to the suspects, who threw him to the ground and then drove off in the van, according to Esparza. The suspects had not been found as of this morning.

One suspect is described as a black man in his mid 30s who is between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs about 200 pounds and wore either a black or blue beanie and jacket, Esparza said. No description was available for the other suspect, he said. No one was injured in the robbery.
