Four men jumped a 47-year-old man early this morning at 16th and Valencia, according to police.

The victim was walking on Valencia at 2:43 a.m. when he was approached by the suspects who demanded money. One pulled out a gun and punched the victim, a second suspect had a knife and kicked the victim. They took the victim’s money and ran toward Mission Street on 16th Street.

No arrests have been made.

Crime is trauma and the county offers different services. Here is a link to a page of services.

Victims of violent crime can contact the Trauma Recover Center at UCSF.

    I’m surprised you’re not high fiving these thugs.

    Love how you consistently provide better descriptions of the victims than of the suspects. What is that about?

    Good thing we pay the SFPD $500m and change per year, too bad they don’t have a cop shop a block away from 16th and Valencia.

      Are you suggesting that it is okay for the SFPD to allow serial robberies to take place at a high crime location within a block of their station?

        So you think there is no connection between the rash of stabbings, shootings and robberies that’s been taking place late at night and the SFPD’s fear of doing their job to keep us safe?

        The cops are being sic’ed on the homeless during the daytime, not on marauding violent perps at night.

        No, the (lack of a) connection that I am seeing is between your claim that the 16th Street area does not need cleaning up and the rash of crimes there that appear to indicate that it does.

        You don’t get to redefine the debate. The comment was on how there is a rash of violent crimes and robberies, crimes against persons right under the noses of the SFPD.

        The cops can be bothered when developers want to create a clamor for condos by day but cannot be bothered when people are being killed, stabbed and shot by night. Apparently you are okay with this.

        So you now oppose the broken window’s theory?

        My, oh, my you are situationally unethical!

        The cracking down on quality of life problems at the BART plaza is an example of the broken windows strategy of LE that has proven to be so effective at cleaning up Times Square in New York.

        But it is not an overnight remedy. It’ works gradually but inexorably.

        In Phil’s twisted view, windows are only broken when they are nonviolent and poor, when there is violence in play, the cops can’t be bothered to put their pensions at risk in order to keep us safe even if it means poking their heads out of their field office to look down the block.

        Cops should be stationed at 17th/Capp, 16th/Valencia and 16th/Mission between the hours of 10PM and 8AM every day.
