In addition to last night’s shootout that sent two to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, police report that a 55-year-old man was waiting at the bus stop at 16th and Mission streets at around 8:30 Monday night when a roughly 30-year-old man approached him and started punching him in the face. The victim fell to the ground, where the suspect kicked him in the stomach and grabbed a ring, a watch and some cash before fleeing the scene. The victim was transported to California Pacific Medical Center hospital, and no arrest was made.
At 10 p.m. the same night, a 26-year-old woman was approached on 18th and Guerrero Streets by another woman about 20 years old. The second woman grabbed the victim’s purse, which contained a wallet, cash, a driver’s license, checkbook and credit cards. The victim struggled to hold on to the purse, but the suspect punched her and eventually succeeded in taking the purse. She then got into a black Ford Explorer and fled. The victim was uninjured and no arrest was made.
Finally, a cat door allowed a burglar entry at a home on Church between 21st and Hill Streets, where a 23-year-old woman awoke on Monday to find that someone had stolen some cash from a countertop. The suspect had unscrewed a cat door on the side of the home in order to get in, and then let him or herself out through the kitchen door.
