Homeless Man Accused of Attempted Robbery, Threatening Victim with a Gun

One homeless allegedly drew a gun on another during an attempted robbery, according to San Rafael police.

San Rafael police arrested a homeless man accused of threatening another homeless man with a gun on Friday, according to Sgt. Lisa Holton.

Brandon Gammage, 25, was booked in Marin County Jail Nov. 9, on suspicion of attempted robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats and violation of parole. His bail is set at $50,000.

Between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m., a homeless man reported to police that Gammage, who is also homeless, allegedly tried to rob him, according to Holton.

The victim said when Gammage failed, they fought and Gammage hit him in the head with a gun. As Gammage walked away, the victim continued to yell at him and Gammage said "If you keep running your mouth I'm going to shoot you in the head," according to Holton.

Police found Gammage walking along the marsh near 3070 Kerner Blvd., where they arrested him. They did not find a gun on him or in the area, Holton said.
