Police release video of suspects in robbery of Examiner photographer

San Francisco police have released this video showing the black Pontiac Grand Prix that two robbers used as a getaway car after they robbed a San Francisco Examiner photographer of his camera on July 23.

The photographer was walking east on Bryant Street, near the Hall of Justice, when two robbers pushed him from behind.

As he fell, the robbers grabbed his Canon EOS-1D digital camera and dragged him 20 feet. The camera and lenses are worth more than $9,300.

The robbers fled south on Langton Street and a surveillance camera captured footage of them driving away in the Grand Prix. The video also appears to show a possible "Good Samaritan" chasing the suspect in a Toyota Tacoma pickup or a similar vehicle.

Police are asking the public to help identify the Good Samaritan in the pickup truck or the robbers. Anyone with information is asked to call (415) 575-6039 or the Anonymous Tip Line at (415) 575-4444. Tips can also be sent by texting TIP411 and starting the message with SFPD.
