Half Moon Bay man beaten, robbed in South City while driving to work

A Half Moon bay man was robbed Saturday in South San Francisco while driving to work, according to police.

The 21-year-old man was driving on Tanforan Avenue around 6:30 a.m. when two men walking in the area flagged him down.

When the victim rolled down his window to speak to them, they repeatedly punched him in the face, police said. He got out of his car, and the suspects knocked him to the ground and kicked him in the head before taking his wallet and fleeing the area.

The suspects were described as Hispanic males between the ages of 25 and 35, wearing blue jeans and black hooded sweatshirts. One was described as being about 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 200 pounds and wearing a mustache. The suspects were last seen running toward San Bruno.

The victim suffered minor injuries, and declined medical treatment, police said.

Anyone with information on this robbery should call South San Francisco police at (650) 877-8910 or the anonymous TIP line at (650) 829-3700.
