Woman punched in face by man trying to steal a muffin in the Mission 

A woman was punched in the face by a muffin-loving thief in the Mission on Tuesday, police said.

The suspect, a man who appeared to be in his 40s, walked into a store in the 200 block of Valencia Street about 8:12 a.m. and was looking around when a 53-year-old woman who works there asked him to leave.

The man then took a muffin from a shelf and attempted to leave without paying, police said.

The woman grabbed the muffin but the man punched her in the face and then fled.

The woman was not seriously injured in the assault and refused medical treatment.
