Man Attempting to Buy Marijuana at 420 Celebration Beaten, Robbed

Six men attacked a 21-year-old man attempting to purchase marijuana in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on Monday during the 4/20 celebrations, police said.

According to police, at about 6:30 p.m. Monday, one of the suspects asked the victim if he would like to buy marijuana from him.

The victim agreed and handed the suspect cash, but the suspect then walked away with the money instead of handing over the marijuana. The victim followed the man and asked for his money back, at which point five other men approached the victim, police said.

The suspects beat up the victim and took his remaining cash, then fled on foot and remained at large as of today, according to police.

The victim suffered facial abrasions and was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.
