Man sitting on bench jumped by three thugs

A 28-year-old man sitting on a bench at 18th and Dolores streets was jumped by three thugs Thursday, one of which struck the victim in the head with a bottle, police said.

The three brutes approached the man at 8:30 p.m. and demanded his money, cops said.

One of the hoodlums struck the victim in the head with a bottle while another punched him in the head and neck, police said. Two of the suspects then went through his pockets and took his money.

The crooks fled on foot, cops said. The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made.
