A woman struck a deal with a man who stole her glasses at 16th and Mission streets at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, offering her purse to the suspected robber in exchange for her spectacles back.  

The woman, 32, was walking past a group people on Mission Street when the suspect, believed to be in his late 30s, approached her and pulled woman’s glasses off of her face. The woman offered her handbag in return for her glasses, and the man accepted, returned the woman’s glasses, and took the purse. The woman returned home and called the cops.

No arrest has been made.
