SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A second suspect in an armed robbery in the Richmond District last month that targeted a mother and her two young daughters has been charged with second-degree robbery and other charges, according to the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.
Milton Singletary, 59, was arrested on April 12, the San Francisco Police Department said. The robbery occurred on March 24 shortly before 6 p.m.
Officers from the SFPD Richmond Station responded to the 2400 block of Lake Street on a report of armed robbery with a gun. After arriving at the scene, officers met a 32-year-old female victim. She told police she was exiting her vehicle with her two young daughters when they were approached by a man with a firearm.
The suspect pointed the gun at her and demanded her property and took several personal items from her. He then got into a waiting vehicle driven by a second suspect and fled the scene. None of the victims were injured as a result of the crime, police said.
The victim’s phone was tracked to the area of Golden Gate Avenue and Jones Street, police said. Officers from the SFPD Northern Station received information on the suspects’ possible whereabouts. Officers responded, located the suspects’ vehicle and initiated a traffic stop.
The suspect vehicle then attempted to flee before coming to an abrupt stop. Two suspects exited the vehicle. The driver fled on foot and eluded officers. The passenger, Darryl Robinson, 57, of San Francisco, was taken into custody. A loaded firearm was also recovered at the scene.
