Tis the season for muggers to return crucial pieces of identification to their victims. Take, for example, a Telegraph Hill mugging victim who has his wallet returned to him after sobbing during a mugging. SF Examiner reports, "The 29-year-old victim was robbed around 10:30 p.m. [Thursday night] as he was walking upstairs in his apartment building on Grant Avenue in Telegraph Hill. The crook, who had snuck inside, crept up behind him and demanded his stuff."
After breaking out the waterworks, the suspect then returned the victim's wallet. But only after stealing the cash out of it. Still, a nice gesture from the robber, who we hope gets captured and tossed in the clink.
