A 45-year-old man was robbed Tuesday night while walking out of a check cashing business in the Tenderloin. The victim was reportedly counting his cash advance while strolling down the street near the former heroin deli at Turk and Jones Streets around 7 p.m. yesterday evening, when two suspects pistol whipped him and knocked him unconscious.
The two thieves, described only as men in their 20s, took off with the man's cash, which he is probably paying an exorbitantly high interest rate on, and had not been found as of Wednesday morning. The victim was taken to St. Francis Memorial Hospital to be treated for the bump on his head, which is not considered life threatening. Waving your cash around on Jones Street, on the other hand, is considered life threatening to some.
