OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Police say a television news reporter was robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco two days after another TV reporter was assaulted in Oakland.

San Francisco police are trying to identify two men who robbed KRON-TV reporter Jackie Sissel while he was on assignment early Tuesday. Police say robbers stole a laptop, a wallet, a camera and a tripod before fleeing the scene.

A call to KRON-TV was not immediately returned.

Oakland police, meanwhile, say they're trying to identify a woman who assaulted a KTVU-TV reporter Sunday while she was covering a fatal shooting at an Oakland swap meet. KTVU News Director Lee Rosenthal says reporter Cara Liu is recovering after the woman punched her while she was conducting an interview with someone else.
