A man was knocked unconscious and robbed while walking out of a liquor store in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood Monday night, police said.
The robbery was reported at 9:26 p.m. in the 100 block of Eddy Street, which is near Mason.
The 52-year-old victim was coming out of the liquor store when three suspects approached and asked him for a cigarette, according to police.
The suspects then punched the man in the head, knocking him unconscious, and ran away with his property, which included a watch, wallet and cash, police said.
The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for mouth and head pain, injuries that were not considered life threatening.
The suspects, men believed to be in their 20s, had not been found as of this morning.
