At 4:20 a.m. Tuesday, the 54-year-old suspect grabbed a stack of transfer tickets as he was getting off a bus at South Van Ness Avenue and Mission Street.

A 41-year-old man grabbed the suspect in an attempt to stop him, but the suspect tried to stab the man with a pair of scissors, forcing him to let go.

The suspect fled on foot and was not arrested. No injuries were reported.

Another robbery was reported by police, this one having taken place over the weekend.

A man estimated to be about 50 approached a 48-year-old woman at 10 p.m. on 24th Street between Treat Avenue and Harrison Street and yanked the woman’s phone out of her hand. The woman, in turn, tried to follow the man, but he turned around, grabbed her and pushed her to the ground.

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and the suspect has not been arrested.
