News Crew Robbed at Gunpoint While Filming Report

Cara Liu, a reporter for San Francisco's Fox affiliate KTVU, was recording a live news report from Pier 14 when three armed men stole camera equipment belonging to another station, KNTV, which was also on the scene. KNTV, an NBC affiliate also filming a report, had its cameraman Alan Waples pistol-whipped. The robber came back to steal KTVU's equipment before fleeing. 

KNTV caught a look at the man on film who allegedly committed the robbery and of his weapon. According to Deadline,

"There were three attackers involved in the incident, the latest in which news crews were accosted by robbers in the Bay Area. The heists have prompted stations to hire security guards, many of whom are former police officers, to accompany crews, particularly for stories in Oakland."

Man, what is up with San Francisco?

I know someone who went there last weekend and got her car broken into while parking near Union Square. She reported it and they told her that she was one of a dozen or so cars that have been broken into recently.

Is SF a den of murder and thievery now?
