SFPD reports man robbed at gunpoint in Castro

A man was held up at gunpoint and robbed in the Castro May 5, according to a report from the San Francisco Police Department.

The SFPD's daily recap stated that the victim, a 41-year-old man, was approached at 16th and Castro streets around 10 p.m., by what he described as a man, probably in his early 30s, who held a gun to him and demanded valuables. The victim, "fearful for his life," the report stated, handed over his wallet, cash, cellphone, and keys. The thief then fled.

No arrests or identifications have been made.
