A television reporter covering the reopening of I-280 in San Francisco was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday morning.
Police say it happened around 5am near 18th and Pennsylvania Streets in the city’s Potrero District.
Police say the reporter was sitting in his van when two men opened the door and ordered him to the back before stealing his wallet as well as TV equipment before fleeing.
Police say the two were only described as African-American men, wearing dark clothing. Their faces were covered with bandanas.
The robbery is the latest involving members of the news media in the Bay Area.
Some stations started hiring security guards following a series of robberies in Oakland last year.
