A woman who caught a burglar inside her car in the Mission district was punched and robbed of her karate uniform and other items Wednesday.
The 34-year-old victim told police she unlocked the vehicle remotely as she was walking toward it in the 1700 block of Harrison Street, near 15th Street. The woman found a man in his mid-20s inside her car, police said, and he had some of her belongings wrapped up in the karate uniform.
When she confronted him, he grabbed her purse, punched her and then ran south on Florida Street, police said. She was not seriously injured.
