The 38-year-old victim was approached by three suspects as he walked out of a store at Turk and Jones streets at about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday with change in his hands, according to police.

One of the suspects demanded the man’s money, then cut him twice on the neck with a knife, police said.

The two other suspects knocked the victim to the ground, stole his change, and the trio ran away. They had not been found as of this morning, according to police.

The victim was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, police said.

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