Two tourists from the Netherlands taking pictures of Lombard Street were robbed at gunpoint by two men more crooked than the street they were photographing late Sunday night, police said Tuesday.

The two male victims, age 23 and 29, were taking pictures of the crooked portion of Lombard Street at Leavenworth Street about 11:45 p.m. when one of two suspects approached armed with a handgun, police said.

The crook demanded the victims’ cameras and tripod and they complied. The man then told them to turn around while he and a second unknown suspect who was acting as a lookout fled the scene on foot.

The suspects were described as men in their 20s.

The armed suspect was said to be about 5-foot-10, 150 pounds with a medium build, Officer Gordon Shyy said. He was wearing a dark green, hooded sweatshirt and also has a mustache.

The second suspect was said to being wearing a red sweatshirt, a baseball cap, and shorts with white socks and sneakers, Shyy said.
