Man tied up, beaten and robbed in San Francisco office near Union Square

Police are hunting three thugs who hog-tied and beat up an employee of an office building near Union Square before robbing three computers Sunday night.

The 29-year-old victim was attacked in the entrance to the office building in the 500 block of Sutter Street around 10:45 p.m., police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said Monday.

At around 10:45 p.m., two men and a woman came to the front door requesting the victim's assistance. He did not know the suspects and opened the door to see what they needed, Esparza said.

Suddenly one of the suspects, described as a man in his early 30s, punched and kicked the victim, Esparza said. The trio then tied his hands and feet and left him on the floor as they searched for loot, he said.

They stole three computers and monitors from an office, Esparza said.

No surveillance video was located in the area, he said.

The man who threw the punch was white and in his early 30s. He wore a dark jacket, loose-fitting dark pants and had short-cropped hair. The victim could only give a vague description of the second male suspect. He described the woman only as having a skinny build and wearing a white jacket, Esparza said.

As of Monday, there were no arrests, police said.
