Two teenagers in Bayview used a pellet gun to steal a car last Friday, San Francisco police said Tuesday.

At 12:25 p.m. on Friday, a 12-year-old and a 16-year-old approached a man cleaning his car on Ingalls Street and Jamestown Avenue. The teenaged boys brandished a pellet gun and demanded that the 57-year-old give up his car, police say.

After the two teens drove off with the stolen car, officers spotted the car and arrested the suspects nearby.

Two more carjackings occurred over the long weekend, both on Monday. 

At 7:20 p.m, a 30-year-old man left his car running n the 400 block of Jessie Street — near Fifth and Mission streets. When a man in his 20s got into the car, the victim attempted to pull him out. 

The suspect brandished a gun and fled eastbound on Jessie Street.

Just two hours later on Larkin and McAllister streets, two cars got into an accident. When the drivers pulled over, one man punched the other driver and stole his car while another man drove away with the suspect’s car. 

The stolen car with the 34-year-old’s wallet, cash, driver’s license and gym bag were recovered.
