The robbery was reported at about 11:55 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Polk and Grove streets.

The 45-year-old victim was approached by someone who struck him on the head several times with a handgun, according to police.

The suspect took the victim’s camera and fled in a waiting vehicle, but the victim was able to follow it and provided police with a description of the car, a white 1997 Hyundai.

Two suspects, boys ages 16 and 17, were subsequently arrested in connection with the robbery, police said.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for head lacerations, and was in stable condition this morning, according to police.
