A 54-year-old man was standing on 19th and Capp streets when two men in their early 20s drove up in a gray sedan. The two young men got out of their car and introduced themselves as police officers, ordering the 54-year-old to turn around. When the victim complied, they took his wallet from his back pocket and fled in their vehicle.

No arrests have been made.

Stabbing with a Screwdriver 

At 11:20 p.m. on Tuesday, a 40-year-old man approached a 52-year-old man on 24th and Mission streets and requested his money. When the 52-year-old refused, the suspect took out a screwdriver and stabbed him multiple times. He then fled on foot North towards 23rd Street — without taking any of the victim’s property.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening wounds to his forearm and upper chest.

No arrests have been made.

Robbery with a Gun

At 10:08 p.m. on Tuesday, a 30-year-old man approached a 34-year old woman on 19th and Alabama Streets, and tried to grab her purse. When she resisted, the man pulled out a handgun and demanded her property. The woman complied and the suspect fled South on Alabama Street.

No arrests have been made.

  1. Can we get descriptions other than age? It would be super nice if the crooks didn’t get to stay anonymous.

    1. Absolutely. Descriptions would help everyone. Please either provide details or explain why you cannot provide them. Or stop scaring us everyday with these horrific accounts that we are powerless to do anything about.
