  • A teenage boy was assaulted and robbed at Coit Tower on Monday.
A teenage boy was assaulted and robbed by six thugs at Coit Tower in broad daylight Monday, police said.

The victim was by himself at the popular tourist attraction about 5:25 p.m. when he was surrounded by the group.

One of the suspects told the victim he had a gun and demanded the victim’s property. One of the other goons knocked the victim down to the ground where two of the suspects took his cellphone and cash, police said.

The victim was punched twice in the head after grabbing one suspect’s leg as the suspect fled. He told police his head hurt, but he refused medical attention.

No arrests have been made, and there was little suspect information available except that they were likely teenage males.
