Man struggles with thug over gun in Mission district robbery

A man struggled over a handgun with a teenaged thug and was cut by his female accomplice in a Mission district robbery Saturday, police said.

The 31-year-old victim was held up at gunpoint in the 1600 block of 15th Street around 3:45 p.m., cops said. The victim threw his money to the ground and as the gun-wielding punk went to pick it up the victim grabbed the gun and a struggle ensued. The gun fired a shot but no one was hit.

While the victim was struggling with the gun-wielding goon the female accomplice stabbed the victim in his hand, police said.

The 19-year-old suspects were arrested and taken into custody.
