The five suspects punched and shoved the 28-year-old woman into their sedan in the 600 block of Schwerin Street at 2:30 a.m. before stealing her wallet, cell phone and money, San Francisco police spokesman Carlos Manfredi said.

The suspects, then, dropped her off on Russia Avenue.

One of the suspects, a black man in his 30s, fled in an unknown direction, Manfredi said.

The victim sustained a non-life threatening abrasion to her forehead but refused treatment at the scene, Manfredi said.

The suspects are three black men in their 30s and two black females between the ages of 25 and 30.

Anyone with information about the robbery or kidnapping is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
