Heartless hoodlums beat woman up, take her purse

Vicious purse snatchers pounded a female victim’s head into the pavement in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood Thursday, police said.

The victim, who had been walking home, survived the brutal attack in the unit block of Argonaut Street around 9 p.m., police said.

The victim told cops she had just hopped off the bus when “she turned a corner and heard footsteps behind her,” police said.

One of five thugs pushed the victim to the ground and beat her, police said. The thugs fled on foot after swiping her purse, police said.

The woman was rushed to the hospital, police said.

There have been no arrests in the case.
