Mugging in Dolores Park Last Night

And it happened right in front of reader Andy’s place:

It was on 20th near Dolores, across from the Park.  A woman was
walking on the sidewalk when somebody got out of a car and grabbed her
purse, then sped off. (It was an older Maroon Cadillac).

He wasn’t able to get any pics of the vehicle or assailant, but did manage to alert the Twitterverse:

WTF?! Just saw a girl get mugged in front of my apartment. Cops showed up in less than 60 seconds (before I could find my phone).

The girl is not hurt, just freaked out and without a purse. They were in a car, grabbed her purse from her and sped off.

Incidentally, if you see a Maroon Cadilac driving fast around the mission, call 911.

We’re in communication with some of the folks involved and will have more on this soon, so be sure to check back for updates.  In the meantime, be careful out there!

    i heard this happening right outside. we talked to the girl, apparently the guys tried to drag her into the car, then the cops caught them. subsequently, the muggers tried to fight the cops. 5 patrol cars showed up on the scene. i believe they were able to make the arrest.
