Two women, one of whom brandished a knife, robbed a man at 16th Street and South Van Ness Avenue at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, police reported.

The 26-year-old victim was sitting in his car when two women approached him and asked for money for food, police said. When he gave them some money, one pulled a knife and threatened him, and the pair demanded the rest of his personal property.

The two women fled after taking the man’s wallet, cell phone and an unspecified amount of cash, police said.

Police also reported that a drunken 48-year-old man was arrested just after 8 p.m. on Monday for assault with a deadly weapon after scuffling with the resident of a house in the 100 block of Caselli Avenue.

The suspect was allegedly standing in the front yard of the house yelling and screaming when the victim, a 52-year-old man, came out and told him to leave.

Instead, the suspect swung a construction light at the victim, hitting him in the chest. The two men reportedly scuffled, and the victim was able to pin the suspect to the ground until police arrived.

The victim complained of pain in his chest, police said, but declined medical treatment. The suspect was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.
