Woman feeds the meter, then goon’s grubby mitts

A woman was shaken and stirred after being robbed at a parking meter in the 900 block of Larkin Street about 5:10 p.m. Monday.

The 33-year-old victim was putting money into the meter when a man in his 40s grabbed her and began shaking her, police said. The hoodlum reached into her purse and stole her wallet. He ran away up the street, grabbed cash from the wallet and ditched it before jumping onto a Muni bus.
