A trio of thugs earned about $1.65 apiece when they stabbed and robbed a man as he left a Tenderloin corner store Tuesday night, police said.
The chumps’ change heist occurred near Turk and Jones streets about 11:35 p.m., police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. A store clerk called police after a person came in saying someone had been stabbed outside, Andraychak said.
Responding officers found a 37-year-old San Francisco man with two puncture wounds in his neck. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and is expected to survive.
The victim, Andraychak said, told police the suspects fled with a grand total of $5.
The three goons reportedly approached the victim as he was leaving the store with the money in his hand. One of the suspects demanded money, Andraychak said, then stabbed the victim in the neck after he refused to hand it over.
The two other brutes then knocked him to the ground and swiped the cash.
The victim said he did not know the robbers, Andraychak said.
