A man and a woman were assaulted while being robbed at gunpoint in Bernal Heights on Monday, police said.
The victims, an 18-year-old woman and 20-year-old man, were walking in the area of Folsom Street and Alemany Boulevard about 11:50 p.m. when one of three suspects came up from behind the victims and grabbed the woman's purse, police said.
The woman struggled to hold on and her companion tried to help her, but he was pistol-whipped by another suspect, who then slapped the woman in the face.
The three suspects fled the scene on foot with the woman's purse and both victims' cellphones and cash, police said. There was little description of the suspects available Tuesday.
