A man was pistol whipped during an armed robbery in South San Francisco early this morning, police said. At about 12:30 a.m. two masked men armed with guns approached a 41-year-old man who had just parked his vehicle in the 400 block of Cypress Avenue, about a block from the South San Francisco Caltrain station, police said.
The suspects were both armed with shotguns and one of them also had a handgun, police said. The suspects forced the victim out of his vehicle and assaulted him. They then placed him in the backseat of his vehicle and pistol-whipped his head, causing him to lose consciousness, officers said.
According to police, the suspects stole the man’s personal belongings and then fled the scene. After the victim gained consciousness, he drove himself to Seton Medical Center, police said. Both suspects are described as slender men in their 20s. One suspect was described as a Hispanic man and the other was described as a black man.
Both men were described as standing about 5 feet 9 inches tall and wearing a black mask at the time of the assault and robbery. The Hispanic suspect was also wearing a silver chain, black pants, and a gray hooded sweatshirt with a leaf design on the front, police said.
The other suspect was wearing black pants and a black hooded sweatshirt with Nike written in white lettering, police said. The suspects have not been detained and the incident remains under investigation.
