Man robbed of dough in SoMa doughnut shop attack

A man was creamed in a South of Market doughnut shop by a robber wearing brass knuckles Monday, police said.

Around 11:10 p.m., the 50-year-old victim was sitting in a shop that serves tasty pastries at Mission and Ninth streets. A not-so-sweet 25-year-old thug stormed into the shop and attacked him, pushing him out of the shop and onto the sidewalk. He took the victim’s dough — the cash, not the bear claw — as the victim tumbled to the ground, police said. The suspect then fled on foot, cops said.

There has been no arrest.

The victim received several cuts to the back of his head. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for those injuries, which were not life threatening.
