A 28-year-old man was robbed early Tuesday morning as he walked near San Francisco’s Dolores Park, the latest in a string of incidents at the same intersection in recent weeks.

The May 5 robbery occurred at 5 a.m. as the man was walking at 18th and Church streets, at the park’s border.

Two men approached him, pushed him down, went through his pockets, and took his money before fleeing the scene on foot.

Police described the suspects only as two black males.

The victim was left with abrasions to his hand. He didn’t go to the hospital.

As the Bay Area Reporter previously noted, a 48-year-old man was stabbed at the same site Monday, April 20.

Also, in a late entry reported this week, police said two men were robbed at 18th and Church at 11 p.m. Saturday, April 18.

In that incident, two suspects approached the victims, ages 26 and 28, and demanded they “give them everything they have,” Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary.

“Fearing for their safety,” the victims “put their arms up,” Esparza said.

The suspects took the men’s belongings out of their pockets and fled. No descriptions of the suspects are available.

Mexican identification and Social Security cards, a wallet, and a cellphone were taken in the incident, but the victims weren’t injured.
