10:10 AM: You’re gonna love this one. Two men and a woman reportedly confronted a guy who uses a wheelchair, asked him why he was wearing a Raiders cap, pushed him out of his chair and robbed and beat him. before fleeing on foot. This went down on the 200 block of Woodside. Since the victim’s injuries weren’t life threatening, I feel OK about making a joke about how I thought Raiders fans were supposed to be the violent ones. Perhaps we’ll find out the suspects’ team of choice of they’re ever arrested, which they have not as of publication.

1:07 PM Another Muni robbery! A man reportedly demanded another man’s iPod while on Muni near Sunnydale and Persia. When the iPod owner refused, he got punched and the suspect allegedly took his backpack. The alleged puncher got pinched by SFPD!

4:50 PM: A woman was carrying her baby across the crosswalk at Mission and Precita, when she heard two gunshots, and witnessed a red Chevrolet Beretta fleeing the area. As the car passed her, it reportedly grazed her, knocking her and her child to the ground. Their injuries weren’t serious, and no one’s been arrested.

5:30 PM: A man reportedly ripped another man’s gold chain from his neck at 24th and Florida. (I am hoping it was that frustrating What Not To Wear guy.) No one’s been arrested in this robbery.

6:45 PM: Inside a residential building on the first block of Turk, a man reportedly asked another resident for money, who refused. The man then assaulted his refuser, a woman. Other residents intervened before her injuries became life threatening, and he was arrested.

8:20 PM: Here’s another Muni robbery! A man reportedly stole a woman’s iPod from her while riding the bus, and fled at 46th and Ulloa. No one’s been arrested for this one.

12:10 PM: Two men reportedly punched, kicked, and robbed a victim at 19th and Clement. The victim’s injuries weren’t life threatening, and the suspects were arrested.

12:50 AM: A man heard gunshots on 22nd and Mission, then reportedly realized he’d been shot in the knee. His injuries aren’t life threatening, and since the suspected shooter was not seen, no one’s been arrested, of course.

    I guess when no description of the suspect is proffered we can rely on historical data based on similar past stories that actually do list on who they are based on the location and the level of forced used.
