Woman wakes up in Golden Gate Park; man counting money in downtown SF robbed

A drunken stumbling woman says someone knocked her out and dragged her to Golden Gate Park, and a man with an apparently optimistic view of the world thought it was a great idea to count his money at one of San Francisco’s seediest intersections. Here’s a sample of the SFPD’s weekend blotter.

25th Avenue and Lincoln Way
2 a.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday

A 26-year-old woman stumbling home from a party said her memory is unclear, but that she believes someone struck her from behind, knocking her unconscious. She awoke on a path inside Golden Gate Park. There was no evidence of sexual assault.

Seventh and Market streets
1:15 a.m. Sunday

A 44-year-old man apparently thought it was a good idea to count his money in this crime-ridden area. A suspect went up to him, offered food stamps for sale and then robbed the victim at knife-point after he refused the food stamps.

Scott and Fulton streets
7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Sunday

A man woke up in his home and discovered the place had been ransacked. The burglar or burglars stole two smartphones and a laptop.

Ninth Avenue and Geary Boulevard
1:45 p.m. Friday

Marijuana distributors were robbed at gunpoint of three 1-pound bags of pot. The suspects contacted the victims over the Internet to set up the deal. The robbery occurred at the home of the victims.
