Two boys ages 12 and 13 were robbed in San Francisco's Bayview District on Thursday afternoon, police said Friday.
The boys were walking near Keith Street and Quesada Avenue around 4:15 p.m. when five suspects approached, according to police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.
The suspects, described as 16 and 17 year old boys, surrounded the victims and one took an MP3 player from a victim before fleeing, police said.
The boys were not injured in the robbery.
The suspect who took the MP3 player was described as a teenage boy who is black, about 6 feet tall, weighs about 160 pounds, has short, black hair and was last seen wearing a Hollister black sweatshirt and black pants, Esparza said.
Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the message.
