Men throw Molotov cocktails into Tenderloin store after dispute

Two men allegedly threw Molotov cocktails into a store in San Francisco’s Ellis Street early Saturday after an argument with a store employee, police said.

Two men in their late 20s argued with a 28-year-old man in a store in the 300 block of Ellis Street around 12:30 a.m. when the victim ordered them out, according to police.

The two men returned around ten minutes later, while the victim was sitting behind the counter, and threw Molotov cocktails into the store before fleeing the area.

The victim was able to put the fire out and was not injured in the incident.

Police had not reported any arrests in the incident as of Monday morning.
