A 55-year-old real estate agent was held up at gunpoint and robbed during an open house on a privately owned street in San Francisco’s Bayview Heights neighborhood last weekend, the San Francisco Police Department said this week.

The woman was showing a home on the 200 block of Pelican Cove on Saturday afternoon when the robbery occurred, police said.

That stretch of Pelican Cove is one of 264 privately owned street segments in San Francisco.

The victim was standing in the kitchen of the home that she planned to show, shortly before 2:30 p.m., when she heard footsteps inside the house, according to police.

They demanded money, police said, gesturing at her purse with the gun until she emptied her wallet of cash, then demanded more and started rifling through the bag.

But they were interrupted by a ring of the doorbell and fled, piling into a blue-silver BMW and driving away from the scene, according to police. The incident is under investigation, and no detailed description of the suspects has been released.
