A suspect who attacked a man just steps from San Francisco's popular Union Square area used his victim's own garments to aid in the crime, according to the San Francisco Police Department.
Police say that the crime occurred at 4:24 a.m. Wednesday, on the 500 block of Mason Street, which is between Post and Sutter Streets.
Police say that the male victim was approached by an "unknown male," who pulled the victim's shirt over his head, obscuring his vision and restricting his ability to move.
The suspect then punched the restrained man "several times," according to the SFPD, and pulled the victim's cell phone from his grasp before fleeing.
The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the attack, and was transported to San Francsico General Hospital for treatment.
But though the suspect remains at large, the SFPD says that his booty does not, as the victim's cell phone "was retrieved a short time later."
