SAN FRANCISCO —
An attacker beat a 70-year-old man and stole his cane, and robbed a woman in her 60s of a bag while the pair waited at a bus stop near Candlestick Park on Tuesday morning, police said.
The robbery was reported around 7:05 a.m. Tuesday at a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus stop in the 800 block of Ingerson Avenue.
The two victims were waiting for the bus when a man in his 30s approached, took the man's cane, and struck him in the face, according to police.
The suspect then grabbed the woman's bag and ran away. He had not been found as of this morning, police said.
The male victim was treated at the scene for bruising to his face. The woman was not injured, according to police.
Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
