A 28-year-old Hispanic man was mugged last night at 8:30 p.m. He was sitting on a bench at Dolores and 18th streets when he was approached by three Hispanic males, ages 28 to 33.

They asked him for money, then one hit him on the head with a bottle while another punched him in the head and neck. After going through the victim’s pockets and removing his cash, all three fled on foot. The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No arrests have been made.
