  • A gas station employee in Bernal Heights San Francisco was sprayed with a chemical by a doughnut thief.

A gas station employee was pepper-sprayed by a doughnut thief in Bernal Heights on Monday, police said.

The 64-year-old male victim was working at the gas station in the 3400 block of Mission Street about 6 a.m. when a woman in her 20s walked in and grabbed a doughnut and began walking out, police said.

The employee asked the woman to pay for the doughnut and she pepper-sprayed him and ran away — with the doughnut.

The man was treated at the scene for his injuries, which were not life threatening. He told police he recognized the suspect from previous theft attempts.
