Man struck, injured fleeing thieves in Portola

Suspects trying to flee the scene after stealing a laptop from a Portola District store on Friday struck and seriously injured the victim as he pursued them, San Francisco police said.

One of the suspects, described as a man in his late 20s, entered a store at San Bruno Avenue and Silliman Street around 4 p.m. and took a laptop from a 49-year-old man inside, police said.

The victim chased after the suspect as he got into a waiting vehicle driven by a second man.

The vehicle struck the victim as it fled toward a nearby southbound U.S. Highway 101 on-ramp, leaving him with life-threatening injuries, police said.

No arrests had been reported as of this morning and police did not release detailed descriptions of the suspects.
