San Francisco police are looking for a trio who forced their way into a 65-year-old woman's residence last night during a home invasion robbery.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, it was about 7:30 p.m. when the victim was inside her home on the 100 block of Taylor Street. She heard a knock at the door, and when she answered she found three people -- two women and a man -- at the door, insisting she owed them money and some prescription medication.

When the victim tried to close her door, the group pushed their way inside and continued demanding the pills and cash. The male robber grabbed the woman's pup and threatened to harm it unless the victim handed over her money and medication.

The victim, who claims to know the suspects, complied and gave the robbers her prescription pills. The suspects left and have not been seen since.

The suspects were described as follows:

A 5-foot-2 black woman, weighing about 120 pounds, with red hair. She was wearing a black beanie, a black "San Francisco" jacket. She was between 25 and 35 years old.

A 6-foot-2 black man weighing about 180 pounds. He was wearing a gray hoodie over a black hoodie, red shoes, and blue jeans. He was between 35 and 45 years old.

A 5-foot-2 black female, weighing about 120 pounds. She had short hair and was wearing a black leather jacket. She was between 25 and 35 years old.

And we know what they'll be chowing down on for Thanksgiving.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
