A CNN reporter and crew was robbed in San Francisco while reporting the city’s rampant crime.

On Friday, CNN correspondent Kyung Lah took to Twitter to describe how their rental car was vandalized while she was interviewing City Hall.

“Got robbed. Again,” Lah wrote. “[CNN producer Jason Kravarik] & I were at city hall in San Francisco to do an interview for @CNN. We had security to watch our rental car + crew car. Thieves did this in under 4 seconds. Security stopped the jerks from stealing other bags. But seriously- this is ridiculous.”

Lah wrote that their hired security guard “tried to grab the crooks” but took a photo of their getaway car’s license plate instead. She also thanked the San Francisco Police Department for responding to the incident.

“To the jerks who stole our stuff— I hope someone on this site sees your plate and you get caught,” Lah told the criminals.

Lah tweeted while sharing video of the shattered rear window of their car, “San Francisco is a beautiful city. This is our 3rd day here and I’ve loved my time here. But if you do visit this city, know that even with hired security watching your car, it is not enough.”

The CNN reporter and crew who were robbed expressed concern about being able to board her flight without her ID or passport, both of which had been stolen.

She then told her Twitter followers, “Bc so many people get their cars broken into and their bags stolen, @SouthwestAir was very used to my lack-of-ID problem and smoothly gave me my ticket after a brief security check. Off to TSA now.”

Lah says, “if you fly out of Oakland, know the gas stations are being hit around the airport. Teams here in Oakland say passengers show up crying because their bags are all stolen in seconds.”

She later stated that her bag had been found, whereas Kravarik’s was “still missing.”

It’s unclear whether the second robbery Lah mentioned in her Twitter thread also occurred in San Francisco. She and CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News requests for comment.

While crime in cities nationwide has increased recently, San Francisco has been a hot spot for robberies and assaults.

Due to rampant shoplifting, Walgreens was forced to close several of its stores in San Francisco.

The rise in crime in San Francisco resulted in the 2022 recall of the city’s progressive district attorney, Chesa Boudin, by more than 55% of residents in a historic recall election.
