British tourists robbed near Cesar Chavez Street 


Two British tourists were reportedly robbed last weekend of their camera, cash, bank cards, driver’s licenses, phones and other items as they were walking just south of Cesar Chavez Street.

The female tourists, who were in town for a short time, called police at about 8:45 p.m. Saturday and said there were walking in the 1500 block of York Street when the suspect approached, Ingleside Station police reported Wednesday.

The thug said “give me your camera” while pressing a handgun to one of the tourist’s shoulder, police said. He then reportedly held the gun to the head of one of the tourists after she pleaded “please no.”

“I’ll shoot you,” he said before fleeing with their property.

The victim’s were not injured, police said, and an arrest had not been reported as of Wednesday.
