Whoever said intimidating thieves can’t be at least a tiny bit generous?
A woman who was robbed by three males at a bus stop at Geary Boulevard and Spruce streets at 5:20 a.m. on July 11 asked her aggressors, who had snatched her purse, if they could let her keep her bus pass and identification card, according to Richmond Station police.
She made the request as one of the suspects threatened that he had a weapon. She also asked while one suspect searched her purse.
In the end, however, the suspects appeared to have heeded her request. They ran off with a cell phone and credit cards, but then gave her back her purse before fleeing on Geary Boulevard, police said.
The suspects were described as males in their 20s wearing dark clothing, police said.
It was one of many armed robberies in The City last week.
