San Bruno police are on the lookout for a man connected to three armed robberies near Commodore Park on Monday and Tuesday.

The first incident took place Monday at about 5:37 p.m. on the 1000 block of Cherry Avenue. In that incident, the victim reported a man approached him on foot with a kitchen knife and demanded personal property. He took the victim’s laptop and fled toward a nearby apartment complex. He was described as Latino, approximately 25 to 30, 5 feet 10 inches, skinny and wearing a black trench coat, according to police.

At approximately 10:24 a.m., officers responded to another report of an armed robbery in the same area. According to the victim, two men approached him on foot with one them brandishing a large kitchen knife. They took the victim’s wallet and cellphone and fled on foot toward the same nearby apartment complex. The suspect with the knife in this case is described as Hispanic, in his late 20s, approximately 5 feet 8 inches with a thin build and a thick mustache. This suspect was wearing a black wool cap and a black backpack. The second suspect in this case matched the description provided by the victim in the previous incident, according to police.

Later that day, at 1:47 p.m., a third victim came into the San Bruno Police Department to report he was also the victim of an armed robbery in the same area at approximately 9 p.m. Monday. According to this victim, two suspects cornered him in the restroom of Commodore Park, and one of the suspects brandished a hammer and demanded his personal property. After taking the victim’s cash and other belongings, the suspects fled the area on foot, in an unknown direction. The suspects in this incident matched the description provided in the earlier case, according to police.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the San Bruno Police Department at (650) 616-7100 or sbpdtipline@sanbruno.ca.gov.
