Two pedestrians were robbed at gunpoint during separate but similar incidents in Redwood City over the weekend.

A 25-year-old Redwood City resident was walking near Adams Street and Redwood Avenue around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, June 21 when a dark car pulled up near him, said police Lt. Sean Hart.

Two Hispanic men exited the vehicle and at least one was armed with a handgun. The suspects stole cash from the victim at gunpoint, Hart said.

They were both described as in their 20s, one with long hair and a beard and the other with a shaved head, Hart said.

Around 3:12 a.m. Sunday, another young man was robbed at gunpoint a few blocks away, Hart said.

In that incident, an 18-year-old Redwood City resident was walking home near El Camino Real and Redwood Avenue when two men armed with dark handguns approached him on foot, Hart said. In fear, the victim got down on the ground as the burglars pointed the gun at his head and stole his wallet and cellphone, Hart said. The two suspects were described as between 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall with medium builds. Both were wearing dark hooded sweatshirts and had their T-shirts covering their faces, Hart said.

They were last seen fleeing on foot west on Redwood Avenue, Hart said.

Anyone with information about either case should contact Redwood City police at (650) 780-7100.
