A man was carjacked in San Francisco’s Duboce Triangle neighborhood Thursday afternoon, according to police.

The March 31 incident in the 400 block of Duboce Street started when the victim, 58, dropped off a passenger. He left his key in the ignition, and the suspect jumped in and started the vehicle. When the victim tried to stop the suspect, the man punched him in the chest “several times,” Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary.

The suspect started driving as the victim held on to the driver’s side door, then “slammed on the brakes,” knocking the victim to the ground, Esparza said.

The thief fled with the car westbound on Duboce toward Market Street. He is described only as a black male between the ages of 30 to 40. The car that was stolen is white.

The victim sustained abrasions to his hands and knees and refused an ambulance. His cellphone was also taken in the incident.

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 160 266 350.
