Two armed suspects robbed visitors in the parking lot at Coit Tower last night, police reported.

The victims, a 42-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman, were taking photos at 10:30pm when they were approached from behind by two male suspects.

The first suspect pointed a gun at the victims, who ran away, leaving their camera and equipment behind. The suspects fled with the victims' property, heading eastbound on Telegraph Hill Blvd.
