Man’s tablet computer ripped off by ruffian

A man was robbed of his tablet computer Monday at the temporary Transbay Terminal, police said.

About 8:15 p.m., the 27-year-old was reading from the computer at the terminal at Beale and Howard streets when a thief tried to grab it from his hands. A struggle ensued, but ultimately the suspect overpowered the victim and fled north on Beale Street.

The victim was not injured.
