Berkeley police are searching for multiple suspects after a private film crew was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday morning near the Berkeley Marina.

None of the three victims were injured in the robbery, reported about 11:11 a.m., near the intersection of Seawall Drive and University Avenue.

According to Berkeley Police Department spokesperson Officer Jennifer Coats, the crew was approached by two black men and ordered to the ground. The suspects allegedly took a camera and tripod, and escaped in an early-2000s gold station wagon driven by a third man, also black.

The man who held the gun is described as 6-foot-0 and between 18 and 25 years old, wearing a blue sweatshirt and jeans. The other man was described as 5-foot-8 and between 20 and 25 years old, also in jeans. Their escape vehicle did not have plates, according to Coats.

The victims, from the local Hoff Productions company, were near the marina to interview a retired Alcatraz prison guard.
