Police have not made an arrest.

At 11:50 p.m. on Tuesday, a 26-year-old woman was assaulted and robbed near 18th and Mission streets. The woman was approached by a man in his 30s to 40s, who began talking to her. The man then punched the woman, took her purse, and fled the scene on foot. According to police reports, the woman later located the suspect and confronted him. The suspect again fled the area, but left the woman’s purse behind.
