A woman sustained life-threatening injuries during a robbery in Telegraph Hill earlier this month, according to police

The 31-year-old woman told police she was walking to her car near Broadway and Montgomery Street on Nov. 11 around 3 a.m. when she was approached by two women she didn’t know, who tried to grab the backpack she was wearing.

The victim was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and has been recovering, he said. There was no report of any weapons being used.

The victim waited until Dec. 4 to report the crime. Rueca didn’t know the cause of the delay, but said police will conduct an investigation.
