A heartless and apparently hungry hoodlum punched a woman in the Bayview on Monday and ran off with her lunch, police said.

The 32-year-old victim was waiting for the Muni Metro light-rail-vehicle at Third Street and Williams Avenue about 7:50 a.m., police said. When the train arrived, she attempted to enter in one of the rear doors, where an unknown suspect blocked her way and grabbed her lunch bag.

She struggled to retain it but the thug punched her and ran off with her lunch.

Police believe Muni surveillance cameras may have captured the incident and the investigation is ongoing.
