Muni mugging: A young man was on a Muni bus at Cortland and Mission streets when a fellow passenger whipped out a knife and demanded the victim’s money. The suspect took the money and fled the bus at 9:34 p.m. Sept. 8 as the victim watched him flee. The victim requested that the bus driver call police.

Four officers converged on the scene and arrested the mugger as he emerged from a nearby store, where he was attempting to exchange currency. The suspect, who lives on the 100 block of Ellsworth Street, is on probation for burglary. This time he was arrested for robbery, receiving stolen property and a probation violation.

Mr. Wrong: An ex-boyfriend broke into a woman’s house on the 1-100 block of Raymond Street, held her against her will and threatened to kill her if she called the police. Officers found the suspect on Girard Street near San Bruno Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Sept. 12 and arrested him for numerous felonies.
