Four teens went on a crime spree near Dolores Park last night, robbing two men and sending one of them to the hospital with stab wounds.
Their first crime occurred in the Castro near 18th and Sanchez streets at 10:39 p.m. Four young males approached a 37-year-old man from behind. One of them grabbed his waist and demanded his backpack and bicycle. Two of the four suspects took his property and fled toward the Mission. The man lost a camera, an iPod and his bicycle.
Twenty minutes later, the group of four approached a 35-year-old man at 15th and Dolores streets. Without warning, one of them stabbed him from behind with a knife. The suspects then took his backpack and fled on foot. The man was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
A few minutes later police apprehended the young criminals, who were in possession of some of the stolen items. Their ages range from 15 to 17 years. Because they are minors, their names will not be released.
