One Robbery, One Attempt and a Slug in the Face

En Español

Police said  two suspects in their  20s robbed a man in his 50s and a woman in her 30s at gunpoint on Tuesday at 10:15 a.m. as they walked out of Bob’s Liquor and Grocery on  26th and Harrison streets.

The suspects made away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The attendant at Bob’s Liquor and Grocery said Wednesday that he  was unaware of the incident. Nearby residents also said they knew nothing about the Tuesday morning robbery.  Two teenage victims were  shot outside the store this summer.

Later on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. two  juveniles between the ages of 15 and 17 years approached a male youth on Mission Street and demanded his property, police said.  The victim said he had nothing of value, at which point the suspects punched the victim in the face and fled the scene, according to police who declined to name the cross street where the crime occurred.

The victim was taken to the  hospital with a non-life threatening injury and has since been released.  No arrests have been made.

    If there were a “god” in “heaven,” then surely the people who actually own these corner liquor stores all over our Mission District – who are likely not the clerks, and are likely far away – would burn in “hell.” Each of these stores is exactly like all the others. All prey upon the weakest members of our community. None contribute to making the Mission a better place to live. My guess is that some sort of cartel owns or franchises all of them. Wouldn’t that constitute a series of “chain” stores which are so loathed? Who REALLY owns and runs these blights?

    I second Nala’s request! ML, please do one of your excellent in-depth investigative stories on these corner stores, and who owns and manages them.

    Interesting investigative reporting opportunity. The ownership of these places are matter of public record. Their interrelationship is the grist for a good investigative reporter. My stomach tells me the results would be very complex and interesting.

    I would guess that the owners of these stores are just like you and me; trying to make a living. Perhaps we should blame the two gentlemen robbers instead of the store owner. BTW the article doesn’t mention the physical description of the gunmen. Were they ghosts or is in non-pc to tell us their race, height, clothing, etc?
