A woman was knocked unconscious and her purse snatched in an assault and robbery in the North Beach neighborhood Monday night, police said.

The 57-year-old victim was walking in the 800 block of Greenwich Street about 9:30 p.m. when she felt a tug on her purse, police said. Before she knew it, she was knocked out and woke up on the street with her purse missing and cuts to her face.

She was taken to the hospital for her injuries, which were not life threatening. There was no suspect information Tuesday.
