Four Robberies in First Weekend of August

The weekend saw at least four robberies in the Mission, according to San Francisco Police Department reports. All of them happened near the corner of 16th and Mission.

Late Thursday night, a 22-year-old was standing near the corner of 16th and Rondel clutching his sweatshirt when another man ran by and grabbed his belongings. The suspect also took off with the man’s money, sunglasses and a knife.

On Friday at around 3 a.m., a man near the corner of 16th and Mission Street was attacked by five other men, at least one of whom was wielding a knife. The suspects took the man’s money and cell phone before he was able to break free of the attack. As he ran away from the group, he realized he had been stabbed in the leg and was later taken to a nearby hospital.

A similar incident occurred near that same 16th Street corner at 1 a.m. Saturday. A 27-year-old man was approached by six men who surrounded him, hit him multiple times and took his cell phone and wallet. The group of suspects fled the scene and the man had no serious injuries.

At around 3 a.m. Sunday on Shotwell Street near the corner of 16th, two suspects approached a 44-year-old man and threatened him with a baseball bat. The man dropped his cell phone on the ground and ran away; the two suspects grabbed the man’s phone and fled the scene.

No arrests were made.
