Man Knocked Unconscious at 26th and Capp; Another Head-Butted in RV

A man was robbed at Capp and 26th streets early Tuesday. He was walking along the street at about 4 a.m. when two suspects approached him and punched him in the face.

The victim fell to the ground and was knocked unconscious when he hit his head on the curb.

The suspects are described by police as a man in his 20s, 6 feet tall, wearing a brown jacket and a black shirt, and a man wearing dark clothing.

A man in his 60s was robbed and suffered a black eye Thursday morning at 17th and Alabama streets.

Police said the victim invited a woman in her 20s into his recreational vehicle, then drove to 17th and Alabama street, where they parked.

The man laid down in his RV with the woman, who then head-butted him once, grabbed his laptop computer and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The incident happened around 7:30 a.m.

    You know, it seems like all the police would have to do to catch a lot of these criminals is have someone in plainclothes walk around at 1 or 2 am with a cell phone out.

    • Police won’t even walk in the daylight in the Inner Mission these days.

        I see cops walking in the Mission in the daylight every day. What’s your agenda? To sow fearfulness among the populace?

        • Kevin

          Perhaps yours is to sow daytime lethargy among the populace.

            No, I’m just trying to correct incorrect information from people who obsess over “quality of life” issues, and who exaggerate the level of danger in the Mission.

            It’s a mixed income area with an expected level of crime, but the police are not scared to walk here in the daytime and the residents and visitors of the Mission shouldn’t be either.

          I live here, near 24th and Folsom, and have never seen cops walking down the street. I see a patrol car here and there, but never uniformed police.

            Nobody is saying the police are scared to walk around here, just that they can’t be bothered. We are on the lower 24th corridor all the time and never see a uniformed officer walking, ever since Officer Keith (who was the best) got a promotion. There just is no deterrence for all the petty crime, drunken vagrants, kids wearing gang colors hanging in front of the liquor stores, graffiti, etc.

    Eddie: maybe in this holiday season, you should consider being more compassionate for those who have not been so lucky and have died, been wounded (sometimes permanently), had their possessions taken (often at the point of a gun or knife) or been raped this year in our neighborhood due to the level of crime you ‘expect’ and apparently are content to apologize for and enable.

    • Eddie

      I am not apologizing for, justifying, nor enabling crime. You don’t know me, so to describe me as not compassionate is ignorant, a cheap shot, and a misreading of my above comment.

      Perhaps I should have used a better word than “expected” to describe the level of crime in this neighborhood. I am not naive nor a utopian, and I understand that unfortunately there is violent crime here.

      That said, the exaggeration of the dangers in the Mission (“the police won’t patrol during the day”), and the emphasis on “quality of life” issues will not lead to an understanding of the conditions underlying violent crime nor to successful strategies to reduce or eliminate it.

      • mission neighbor

        But the police won’t patrol. That doesn’t exaggerate the level of danger; it just explains some of the opportunity for quality of life crimes in particular and some of the violence as well. The constant police claims that they are around but undercover, well, who knows? I’d prefer they be around actually deterring the graffiti, sales to visibly inebriated people at the crack of dawn, as well as giving the victims of petty theft someone to flag down.

    Nope, I am at at 26th Street and Harrison. Never cops walking during day or not. It would be nice if they would take an occasional stroll through Garfield Park so I can walk my dog without constantly looking over my shoulder.
