Two people were robbed and threatened at knifepoint in Santa Barbara Friday morning. 

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office says the robbery was reported just before 6 a.m. on the 3300 block of Gibraltar Road. 

The victims say three men wearing bandanas covering their faces threatened them with a knife while stealing items from their car. 

After the robbery, deputies say the victims followed the men to a house on the 1100 block of Hillcrest Road. Once deputies arrived, they didn’t find any of the suspected robbers.
