Impatient goons rob, pistol whip men in San Francisco 

There was no pleasing these thugs.

A man was pistol-whipped and had his chain ripped from his neck in the Outer Sunset on Tuesday, police said, even though he was in the process of taking off the neckwear for the robbers.

About 9 p.m., three suspects — two toting handguns — reportedly crept up behind two men and demanded their loot in the 1700 block of 26th Avenue, between Moraga and Noriega streets.

At one point, one of the victims, a 24-year-old man, was reportedly taking off his chain in order to comply with the thugs.

One of the suspects apparently did not care for the cooperation — he pistol-whipped the 24-year-old and his pal, a 26-year-old man, police said. That same thug then reportedly yanked the chain off the 24-year-old’s neck.

The suspects fled, police said, while the victims ran in the opposite direction.

However, the suspects didn’t appear to be satisfied.

While running away, the victims said they heard “what sounded like gunshots,” police said.

The victims reportedly were not hit by any bullets and suffered only minor injuries from being struck with the gun.

No arrests had been made as of Wednesday, police said.
