Armed fashionistas leave victim barefoot, bleeding

A robbery in the Tenderloin early Monday morning left a 20-year-old man with no shoes and a bullet in his arm, police said.

The victim was walking near Leavenworth and Turk streets about 5:30 a.m. when he was approached by two men, one of whom was carrying a gun. The suspects demanded the man’s shoes.

After complying, the victim fled, police said. But he quickly realized he had been shot in the arm.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to treat the wound. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday.
