SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Two women were arrested and police were seeking two others after the group allegedly attacked two other women and stole their dog at a restaurant in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood on Sunday afternoon, police said.
The robbery was reported at about 3:45 p.m. Sunday at a restaurant in the 3300 block of Mission Street.
The victims, ages 38 and 47, were eating at the restaurant when the four suspects, who knew the victims, came in and threatened to beat them up, according to police.
The victims ran out of the restaurant, and as one headed toward her car, the suspects grabbed her and pushed her against a wall, then stole a dog that was in the car, police said.
The suspects fled with the dog and the victims flagged down police, who were able to arrest two of the women. Police had not yet released their names Monday morning.
However, the dog and the other two suspects, women in their early to mid-30s, had not been found as of Monday morning, police said.
