A teen who tried to evade a group of Market Street muggers was sadly unsuccessful Tuesday, as he was beaten and robbed even after seeking shelter in an area eatery.

It was 9:42 p.m. Tuesday when a 19-year-old male walking down Market Street realized a menacing group of people was following closely behind, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

Seeking safety, the teen "tried to go into a restaurant" just off Market at Eddy Street, police say, but members of the gang "grabbed him."

The suspects, which included a man and woman aged 18-20, punched and kicked the victim, then robbed him of his backpack and an unknown amount of cash.

The suspects then fled in an unknown direction, police say. The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the attack, which police say are not life-threatening. The suspects remain at large, police say, and no arrests have been made in this case as of publication time.
