Photographers Robbed in San Francisco: Unsettling Trend on the Rise

On Monday, two professional photographers were robbed of their camera gear in broad daylight in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. The two suspects were reportedly armed with pepper spray, and they made off with equipment worth over $7,000.

CBS reports that the victims were unloading their car at around noon when the robbers approached, grabbed the photographers, sprayed the man with pepper spray, and then ran off with the camera gear.

The female photographer, Natalie, has since turned to Craigslist and Reddit to share more details, warn the photographer community, and ask for help in recovering the gear.

“I am in need of your help in finding my camera gear,” Natalie writes. “There will be a reward and no questions asked if returned.” – Story by Michael Zhang, photo by Tim Adams
