A 27-year-old woman was robbed of her purse at gunpoint by two men on Centennial Trail near the 1000 block of Mission Road in South San Francisco Thursday night, according to police.
At approximately 10 p.m., one of the men grabbed her purse, forcefully pulled it from her shoulder and handed it to the second man, who took it and ran. She chased the men toward Mission Road and got into a physical altercation with them. She was pistol-whipped and the men ran through a parking lot toward Grand Avenue, according to police.
The men are both described as black, early 20s, 5 feet 8 inches and about 160 pounds. One was wearing a baseball cap with a red bill, a black short-sleeved T-shirt, blue jeans, black basketball shoes and armed with a semiautomatic pistol. The other man had dreadlocks and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and black basketball shoes, according to police.
