    I wish “no arrests were made” weren’t the standard suffix to mission crimes.

      Thanks for your comment, Mission resident. The police report on this incident stated that it was on the 3000 block of 26th Street. We will change the recap to reflect this.

      I’m looking at that as well so I also wonder why the people can’t come together to attempt to curb the violence a consistent attempt even through failures and hardship what’s is it now hardships and families feeling like they failed victims maybe because they couldn’t move into a “better neighborhood and the peeps the same for different reasons what’s the difference? By not trying consistently

    Now it just seems default to take a victim’s phone, even when that wasn’t the original intent of the suspect.
