Teens robbed while waiting in line for Black Friday sale

Three teenagers were robbed in line at a San Francisco store on Thanksgiving while waiting for a Black Friday sale, police said.

The victims, two boys ages 14 and one 15, were walking to the end of the line of a store at Masonic Avenue and Geary Boulevard around 9:40 p.m.

Six other teenagers between ages 14 and 17 approached them, with one of the young thugs asking to “buy weed,” police said.

The victims declined and that same suspect then demanded their loot. Three suspects forcibly removed items from their pockets before fleeing toward Geary Boulevard.

No one was injured. There have been no arrests as of Monday, police said.

Though reports of violence on Black Friday spread nationwide, local police say there wasn’t much mayhem in San Francisco.
