Vandals smash car window, puncture tire in San Francisco robbery

Two men were terrorized and robbed on Van Ness Avenue on Tuesday by knife-wielding maniacs, cops said.

The two victims, men aged 54 and 24, got into a car in the 1500 block of Van Ness around 10:10 a.m. when a group of unknown suspects arrived and smashed the car’s window and punctured its tire with a knife, police said.

The vandals demanded their property. The victims complied and the crooks fled with their cash and jewelry.

No arrests have been made.
