Man Tries to Steal Teen’s Shoes at Knifepoint on Muni Bus

A man pulled a knife on a teenage boy on a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus after the boy told him to quiet down on Saturday night, police said.

The 14-year-old victim was riding the Muni bus at Park Presidio Boulevard and Geary Street at 9:10 p.m. when he told the suspect, believed to be in his 20s, to quiet down.

The man approached the boy, pulled out a knife and put it to his chest, demanding his shoes. He then lifted the knife to the boy’s throat and demanded his cellphone.

The assailant made off with the boy’s cellphone, but not his shoes. The victim was uninjured, police said.

Police have not arrested the man and provided no further description of him.
