Man Robbed of Laptop, Car Stolen After Chasing Suspects in Excelsior

A man was robbed of his laptop and then had his car stolen when he chased after the suspects in San Francisco’s Excelsior neighborhood late Tuesday night, police said.

The robbery was reported at 11:43 p.m. in the area of Geneva Avenue and Vienna Street, just west of Crocker Amazon Park.

Three suspects approached the 23-year-old victim, attacked him and took his laptop, according to police.

The suspects then fled in a white sedan and the victim pursued them in his own vehicle, which resulted in a collision between the two cars, police said.

The suspects then got out and attacked the victim again and two of them, men believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, then fled in the victim’s vehicle. A third suspect fled on foot while a fourth drove away in the white sedan, according to police.

The victim suffered injuries to his face but declined transport to a hospital, police said.

The suspects remained at large this morning. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
