Muni rider struck in the face with cane, robbed 

A cellphone conversation on a Muni bus Wednesday prompted some unwanted attention for a 19-year-old man, who was yelled at and struck across the face with a cane by another passenger.

After the altercation, the victim exited the bus at 16th and Mission streets about 3:20 p.m. A group of about eight people followed him, surrounding the man and digging through his pockets. They took his wallet, cash, and debit and Clipper cards.

The man was left red-faced and with pain to his neck and shoulder, but he refused medical attention.

Police did not get detailed descriptions of the suspects.
