Man loses front tooth, belongings in early morning robbery

A man lost more than his belongings after he was robbed early Monday morning in the Mission district, according to police.

The 36-year-old man was walking on Mission and 24th streets at around 2 a.m. Monday when he was approached by two male suspects, according to police. The two men began punching the victim in the face, causing him to momentarily lose consciousness and one of his front teeth.

The suspects fled the scene on foot, but not before making off with the man’s cellphone, credit card and cash.
