A 45-year-old woman was robbed at knifepoint on a Muni bus last week, the San Francisco Police Department said.
Three thugs in their late teens or early 20s surrounded the woman as the Muni bus reached Mission Street and Geneva Avenue at around 1:15 p.m. on April 5.
They “battered” the victim before robbing her. One of the thugs pressed a knife to her stomach, while another snatched her purse police said.
The suspects fled after the attack. They stole cash and a medical card, police said.
The woman suffered a bruise to her left arm, and also pain in her right arm. However, she refused medical attention, police said.
There have been no arrests, police said Tuesday morning.
