Parkmerced resident hospitalized after home invasion robbery

A man was hospitalized Friday afternoon after two men broke into his San Francisco home and assaulted him before taking several of his possessions, police said today.

Around 3 p.m. Friday, officers responded to a home in the first block of Chumasero Drive in the city’s Parkmerced area.

There, they learned a 32-year-old man was sleeping when two men entered the man’s apartment.

The victim was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.

Police were unable to locate the suspects and descriptions of the two men were not immediately available.

Anyone with information about the home invasion robbery is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
