A woman sitting outside an Upper Fillmore District coffee shop in San Francisco with her tablet computer was robbed by a trio of suspects Wednesday afternoon, San Francisco police said. The victim, a 35-year-old woman, was sitting at a coffee shop at the corner of Fillmore and Sacramento streets with her computer when a man ran toward her and stole the tablet around 5 p.m., police said.
The suspect and victim struggled over the computer but the suspect gained control and ran away with the computer into a getaway vehicle, an unspecified silver Mercedes-Benz, in which two suspects were waiting, police said. The three suspects fled in the car and were spotted by police who tried to stop the car, but the driver sped off. A car chase ensued during which the suspects struck a motorcyclist at low speeds.
The motorcyclist suffered minor injuries in the crash, police said. The suspects continued driving away and collided into a news van and then struck another vehicle, before the trio ditched the car and fled on foot. Police then caught up to the three suspects and arrested all three, whose identities have not been released, according to police.
Only one suspect was identified as a 24-year-old man. The tablet computer was recovered and all injured during the chase were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, police said. The robbery victim complained of pain to her hip and arm.
