Hookup ends in robbery in SF

An apparent hookup went wrong early Tuesday when a man was robbed in San Francisco by a man he met in a bar.

The victim, 32, met the suspect, 21, in a bar, and they took the victim’s car back to his hotel room near Post and Buchanan streets at about 3 a.m. July 14, according to Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman.

Once they were on the sidewalk, the suspect reached into the victim’s pocket and took out his wallet. The victim tried to get his wallet back, but the suspect “grabbed his arm and twisted it, causing pain,” Esparza said in a summary of the incident. The suspect, who’s described only as a white male, fled on foot.

The suspect got away with the victim’s wallet, which contained his Brazilian identification, other ID, and cash, but the victim wasn’t injured. No arrests have been reported.

Anyone with information related to the case may call the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444, or text a tip to 847411 and type SFPD, then the message. The incident number is 150611834.
