A man was pepper-sprayed and robbed of an iPad and cellphone while riding a San Francisco Municipal Railway light-rail vehicle on Wednesday evening, police said. The robbery occurred at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday on an M-Ocean View train that was traveling in the 4000 block of 19th Avenue in the city’s Ingleside Heights neighborhood.
The 26-year-old victim was approached by a suspect who grabbed the iPad out of his hands. Then a second suspect approached and sprayed him in the face with the pepper spray and grabbed his cellphone, according to police. The suspects, described only as men in their early 20s, then fled from the Muni vehicle and had not been found as of this morning, police said. The victim suffered minor injuries in the attack but did not require hospitalization.
