SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — A small clothing shop in San Francisco was broken into early Sunday morning.

The store owners say the thieves got away with about $36,000 worth of merchandise.

Surveillance video from Bakana in Cow Hollow shows two people breaking a window and entering the store at around 4 a.m.

Phuong Jewelry in Oakland’s Chinatown is picking up the pieces after one of the most brazen, armed daytime robberies we’ve ever seen caught on video.

Owner Mariana Bakana says this was the first time the shop has been broken into.

“My question is why – why me – why a small business?” she said. “I’m glad for my friends here because they are the ones who help me. Because I was crying here by myself. The police showed up here to take a report, but I didn’t see nobody help me emotionally.”

Bakana worries she will be forced to leave San Francisco if the issue happens again.
