Two people sustained life-threatening injuries following a hit-and-run near 13th and Division streets at 1:09 a.m. on Saturday, though police report that both victims are now in stable condition.

The two victims, a 30-year-old woman and 45-year-old man, were sitting on the sidewalk when a man driving a grey, four-door Toyota Tundra passed by them, reportedly driving without headlights. According to the police report, an object was thrown at the passing car, possibly a set of handlebars.

The driver then backed up the car onto the sidewalk and hit both of the victims, who were transported to the hospital. A suspect was detained, but has since been released due to lack of evidence.

Another hit-and-run occurred later that day, at 3:00 p.m. on Dolores and 18th streets. A 31-year-old man was injured after being cut off while riding his motorcycle. The suspect remains unidentified, but the car is described as a white Honda or BMW. While attempting to avoid the collision, the victim fell to the ground and broke his leg.

Four Robberies and One Assault

As a 35-year-old woman approached her car, parked near 14th Street on South Van Ness Avenue, at about approximately 6:00 p.m. on Friday night, she found a man sitting in the passenger seat. The man brandished a knife and demanded the woman’s property. After stealing her paycheck and cash, the suspect fled on foot. The man has not been arrested.

At 5:10 a.m on Saturday, a 61-year-old woman was robbed at gun point on Treat Avenue near 23rd Street. An unidentified male approached her from behind and pulled out a handgun. The woman handed him her cash, and the suspect fled the scene on foot. No arrest has been made.

At 10:25 p.m., a man in his 30s robbed a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant at 200 Duboce Avenue. The suspect was armed with a handgun when he walked through the restaurant’s back door and gathered all the employees. He then forced the 23-year-old manager to open the safe and ordered the other employees to empty the register tills. After retrieving the cash, the man fled through the back door. “I feel really unsafe. We need security at night,” said an employee who wished to remain anonymous.

On Sunday, a man armed with a buckled belt robbed a retail store on 16th and Mission streets at about 6:25 p.m. The suspect, estimated to be between the ages of 30-40, entered the store and started stuffing clothing items in his bag. He managed to steal two purses, four hats, and two belts before the store’s manager noticed and followed him outside. As the 35-year-old manager attempted to retrieve the items, the suspect took out a belt and swung it at the him. Fearing for his safety, the manager left the scene and the victim fled on foot in an unknown direction.

Late on Sunday night, at 11:00 p.m., a 35-year-old man standing outside of his restaurant and speaking to a customer near 16th and Mission Streets was assaulted. The suspect is between the ages of 30-40 and is an acquaintance of the victim. Pulling up in a Black Infiniti, the suspect got out of his car and punched the victim in the head, before fleeing southbound on 16th Street. The suspect was not arrested.

  1. Regarding the November 15 KFC robbery. On August 24 you published this:

    “Monday at 1:10 a.m., a man in his early 30s entered the McDonald’s at 302 Potrero Ave. from a back door and pointed a gun at a 24-year-old male employee, demanding he open the restaurant’s safe. The suspect then took an unknown amount of cash from the safe and fled through the back door. No arrests were made.”

    I think that fast food places might want to start locking their back doors…
