Woman kidnapped, beaten, robbed in South of Market area

A woman was kidnapped, beaten and robbed before being dropped off in a South of Market alley last weekend, police said.

The 23-year-old victim was forced into a bronze four-door sedan about 2 a.m. Saturday in the 800 block of Folsom Street by another woman who appeared to be in her 20s, police said.

The woman then struck the victim several times before taking her purse and passport, police said. A man in his 20s was reportedly driving the vehicle.

The victim was forced out of the car about three blocks away in the 200 block of Clara Street and the two suspects fled.

She was treated at a hospital for her injuries, which were not life-threatening.Bay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsKidnappingRobberySan Francisco Police Department
