Resident Beaten During San Francisco Home-Invasion Robbery

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man was hospitalized after being punched repeatedly during a break-in at a home in San Francisco’s Lower Haight neighborhood early Wednesday morning, police said.

Shortly before 4 a.m., two suspects broke into a home in the 900 block of Haight Street occupied by four residents, according to police.

One of the suspects, who was armed with a handgun, woke up two of the victims in a bedroom. One of the victims was punched several times when he tried to detain that suspect, police said.

The suspects took a laptop and backpack from the home and fled in a vehicle described as a late 1980s or early 1990s four-door Honda or Toyota. They had not been found as of Wednesday morning, according to police.

The victim who was punched was taken to a hospital to be treated for cuts to his head. His injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Anyone with information about the case was encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
