Two Men Arrested For Mugging 15-Year-Old Kid

A 15-year-old boy was pushed to the ground and robbed in San Francisco’s Outer Mission neighborhood on Tuesday evening by two suspects who were arrested a short time later, according to police.

The robbery was reported at 6:48 p.m. near Alemany Boulevard and Niagara Avenue.

The teen was walking down the street when the suspects approached and asked him what time it was, police said.

When the victim responded, one of the suspects asked if he had a cellphone. When the teen said no, the second suspect pushed him to the ground, grabbed his wallet from his pocket and the pair fled, according to police.

Officers responded and spotted the suspects, two men about 20 years old, and took them into custody, police said. Their names have not yet been released.

The teen was not injured in the robbery.
