Per Bay City News, the unidentified victim was waiting for an Uber near the park, when an SUV rolled up and out came four men wearing all black and masks. They brandished their guns, and demanded the man hand over his possessions. According to police, he was robbed of two bags containing laptops, clothing, and medical equipment.
One bystander reportedly did attempt to intervene, running across the street and telling the robbers to stop. But the four robbers pointed their guns at him and promptly fled.
Like many areas popular with tourists in San Francisco, Alamo Square sees an exceptionally high number of car break-ins, burglaries, and robberies.
