Creeps kidnap teen boy, steal shoes

Another teenager was terrorized on the streets of San Francisco this week, three days after a teenaged girl was robbed in Japantown, police said.

On Wednesday, two creeps pulled a 14-year-old boy into their white van and drove him around for hours before robbing his shoes and dropping him off in Oakland on Wednesday, police said.

The boy was at the intersection of Masonic and Waller streets when two suspects kidnapped him around 6:15 p.m., cops said.

The creeps drove around with the boy for hours before taking his cash, shoes and cell phone, police said.

They then dropped the kid off in Oakland where he walked around for several hours — without his shoes — before calling his father, who then called the police, cops said.

The boy said he would not be able to recognize any of the suspects if he saw them. The van was an unknown model.

On Sunday, a 14-year-old girl was robbed at a bus stop in Japantown by two men who demanded she “Show them the money,” police said.

In that case, the suspects were described by police as a black male wearing a baseball cap, a black jacket and dark blue jeans, and an older suspect, who was described as a black man wearing an orange San Francisco Giants baseball cap, a silver Giants rain jacket, blue jeans and a white shirt.

The teenagers were not injured in either case and no arrests have been made.
