Three attacked in San Francisco Mission District robberies 

Three men were attacked in two separate robberies in a three-hour period in the Mission District over the weekend, a San Francisco police spokesman said.

At about 10:40 p.m. Friday, a 28-year-old man walking in the 3100 block of Folsom Street was approached from behind by three men in their late teens or early 20s who knocked him down, according to police.

One of the men pistol-whipped the victim and the three suspects made off with his laptop and phone, Officer Albie Esparza said. The man was treated at the hospital for minor injuries.

At 12:30 a.m., two men, ages 23 and 25, were approached by four men in their late teens or early 20s at 24th and Mission streets, according to police.

Both men were knocked to the ground and one man was robbed of cash, Esparza said.

Esparza said police arrived at the scene and arrested all four suspects. Those suspects were not believed to be responsible for the earlier robbery, he said.
