Police reported that the driver of a two-door white sedan had just opened the door on 16th Street near Potrero Wednesday at 10:54 p.m. when two suspects—approached him.

They wanted the 29-year-old man’s car. The suspects—one woman about 20 years old and a man about 25—pushed the driver away, got in and peeled off, according to police. No arrests have been made.

Early today at 1:30 a.m. a 35-year-old man was standing outside around the BART Plaza at 16th Street when six men jumped him, police reported. The victim said he was kicked and punched and lost consciousness.

When he woke his cell phone was missing. The victim took a cab a couple of blocks to Mission Station where he reported the incident to police. He was treated at San Francisco General Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

    Too much bad stuff happens at 16th and Mission. It is sad to hear about it, but in the end its better that resources like missionlocal exist that draw attention to things that could be made better.
