Victim unknowingly lets armed robbers into Ingleside home, mistakes them for roommates


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A woman unknowingly let armed robbers into her home on Thursday afternoon in San Francisco Ingleside neighborhood, accidentally thinking they were her roommates, police said.

At about 1 p.m., officers received a report of a home invasion robbery that happened in the 1100 block of Capitol Avenue, according to police.

There, officers spoke with a woman who lived at the home. The women told the officers that she had at least four other roommates, some of whom she had apparently never met.

When two people knocked at the door, the victim believed one of the two was one of her roommates and let the pair in the house, according to police.

One of the suspects then pointed a gun at the woman and told her they were going into one of the rooms. The two suspects then took cash from a bedroom, before fleeing in a vehicle, police said.

The victim was not injured, according to police.

Officers were unable to locate the suspects.

They were described as two men between the ages of 20 and 25, police said.
