Group of 12 assaults, robs teen in Dolores Park

A group of a dozen people assaulted and robbed a 17-year-old boy in Dolores Park Wednesday afternoon, according to police.

Between 2 and 6:35 p.m., 12 people approached the victm, assaulted him, and took his belt, cellphone, wallet, and cash, police said. They then fled in an unknown direction.

The victim wasn’t injured. No descriptions of the suspects were available.

Concerns about safety in the park have increased in recent months, especially after an August shooting in which three people were injured.

Mission Station Police Captain Bill Griffin said shortly after the shooting that officers were in the park every day, rather than just on weekends, since the incident. He said at the time that the staffing pattern would continue.
