- Park armed robbery reported: A man walked into 12th and Pine’s East Precinct lobby early Saturday morning to report that he had just been robbed at knifepoint by three men inside Cal Anderson Park. Police responded to the area around 12:45 AM to look for the three reported suspects described only as a white male armed with a knife wearing a white shirt and blue jeans, and two black male accomplices. The victim said his black bag with a Microsoft logo was taken from him by the armed man near the bathrooms inside the park. Police reported the park was still full of people at the late hour but that nobody in the area reported seeing the robbery. The victim was not injured. The incident joins a string of reported hold-ups and muggings in and around the park this month.
