Police reported that at 6 p.m. on Tuesday a 54-year-old man and his 17-year-old son were riding Muni on Mission Street when the father noticed two teens—anywhere from 17 to 18—peering into his son’s backpack. His son was sleeping.

The man confronted the suspects and his son woke up to join the struggle. One suspect hit the father in the head with brass knuckles, cutting his head and ear. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries

The suspects jumped off the bus on Mission and 21st streets and fled with the 17-year-old’s cell phone. 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.
