N-Judah rider held at gunpoint, assaulted for laptop 

Two assailants shoved a gun into the stomach of a Muni passenger and demanded money from the man, before punching him multiple times and stealing his laptop computer Tuesday night.

The armed robbery occurred at 11:20 p.m. on Tuesday at 48th Avenue and Judah Street, near the western terminus of Muni’s N-Judah train. The victim, a 29-year-old male, was sitting in the rear car of the train when the alleged suspects, both black men in their late 20s, approached him from behind, according to Lt. Troy Dangerfield of the San Francisco Police Department.

One of the suspects stuck a revolver in the victim’s stomach and demanded he give up all his possessions. After a brief struggle, in which both suspects punched the victim — including a couple of blows to his face — the two assailants fled from the train with the man’s shoulder bag, which contained his laptop computer.

The victim, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the assault, eventually recovered his shoulder bag, but the laptop was missing. No suspects have been arrested in the case, and the police department is working with Muni to see if any onboard camera footage might have captured the assault, Dangerfield said.

An investigation is ongoing.
