A 25-year-old man was the victim of a robbery with force on Friday, according to police.

Shortly before midnight, three men between the ages of 18 and 20 stopped their car in front of the victim. All three exited the vehicle and chased the man before punching him several times and taking his shoes. The suspects then fled northbound on Mission Street in a light-colored four-door car.

The victim suffered a laceration to the eye and was treated at the scene.

The incident occurred on Mission and Cesar Chavez. No arrests have been made, police said.


Two suspects fired at a 20-year-old man as he was walking home on 24th near Shotwell Friday night, according to police. The victim was not hit by the gunshots but did flee the area. When officers found him they noticed he had an abrasion on his hand as a result of ducking the bullets, and he was treated by paramedics at the scene. The incident happened just before 11:30 p.m.

A little while later, police located a car on 21st and Shotwell streets that matched the description of the suspects’ vehicle. Officers found a firearm in the car and arrested the suspects, ages 30 and 36, who were booked on multiple felony firearm charges.

It does not appear that the victim and suspects knew each other, according to police. The gang task force is investigating the incident but has not determined if it was gang-related.
