KRON Reporter Robbed at Gunpoint

Just a short time ago, FTVLive told you that a KTVU Reporter was beaten up while covering a story.

Now word comes that a Reporter in the same market was robbed at gunpoint this morning.

The San Francisco Chronicle says that a KRON Reporter was robbed of equipment and personal property early Tuesday in San Francisco's Potrero Hill neighborhood.

The employee, whose name wasn't released, was sitting in his news van on the Interstate 280 overpass near 18th and Pennsylvania Avenue about 5 a.m., preparing a report on recent work that was completed on the freeway.

Two men with bandannas hiding their faces got out of a car, opened the van doors and put a gun to the reporter's head while ordering him to get in the back, police said.

The assailants stole a laptop computer, a wallet and a camera tripod before fleeing in their car.

No arrests have been made. Station managers declined to comment Tuesday.
