SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — A San Francisco family was robbed at gunpoint inside their garage with their two children in the backseat coming home from a family dinner.
It happened at 24th Street and Florida Avenue in the Mission Saturday just after 9:30 p.m.
“We just pulled into the driveway,” Maggie Wong told the I-Team’s Stephanie Sierra. “It all happened within 50 seconds.”

Wong’s husband Jason was asleep in the passenger seat. Maggie walked to the trunk to get their belongings when a young man wearing a surgical mask walks into her garage and pointed a gun at her face.
“I freaked out and started shaking,” Wong said. “He said you must have a wallet, where’s your wallet?”
Wong screamed when she saw the gun and quickly scrambled through her diaper bag to find her wallet.
“I gave it to him as fast as I could.”
Jason says he woke up to her scream and the gun pointed at his face through the window.
“I opened the door hand him $400 cash because I had just been to the bank,” he said before the robber demanded his phone.

Jason attempted closing the garage door, which he says spooked the robber who ran away. The family was just grateful to be alive.
“It’s so sad this is the San Francisco we are living in,” Wong said. “Are we just going to continue living in fear?”
The Wong’s aren’t alone.
