A man, woman, and 2-year-old child were robbed at knifepoint last night in the Mission District, though all three came through the ordeal unscathed.
A 36-year-old man, 39-year-old woman, and 2-year-old male child were walking near 29th Street and San Jose Avenue at 1 a.m. early Tuesday morning when they were approached by two male suspects of unknown age. The suspects pulled small folding knives out of their pockets and threatened the victims. One suspect pointed his knife at the male victim while the second suspect pulled the wallet from the victim’s pants. Both suspects then fled on foot.
On Wednesday at 3:06 a.m., a witness saw a man of unknown age sitting near a garbage can on Dolores Street between 16th and 17th. The man made a pile of garbage on the sidewalk and then set it on fire, walking away.
