Three transgender people are among those suspected in robbing a Lower Nob Hill business late Tuesday, June 11.
At 10:23 p.m. Tuesday, the suspects entered a business in the 200 block of Post Street and grabbed a purse, two wallets, and a scarf, a San Francisco Police Department summary says.
As they were leaving with the goods, a 49-year-old man tried to get the items back, and “a struggle ensued,” police reported. The suspects managed to hold onto the items and fled in a silver SUV.
The summary indicates no weapons were used and said there were no injuries. No one has been arrested in the incident.
It’s not clear whether the transgender people are male or female, or how many robbers there were. Police described the suspects only as three black “transgender,” three black women, and a black man.
In response to an emailed question, Sergeant Dennis Toomer, an SFPD spokesman, said, “We can’t decide who is or isn’t transgender. The persons involved were described as transgender by the victims so that is how we reported.”
