A woman had her purse snatched near San Francisco’s Crocker Amazon Park on Sunday night, police said.
The robbery was reported at 10:33 p.m. Sunday in the 1600 block of Geneva Avenue.
The victim had parked her car and was getting out of it when a suspect approached, reached into the vehicle and told her to give him her purse, according to police.
The suspect was holding a silver object in his left hand that the victim believed to be a knife, police said.
