An early morning mugging on San Francisco's Division Street had an unpleasant capper Tuesday, when the victim both lost his stuff and was bitten by a dog.
According to the San Francisco Police Department, the crime occurred at 12:05 this morning, near the intersection of Division and Bryant Streets.
Police say that the victim, a 43-year-old man, was walking down Division Streetwhen he encountered three suspects: a man in his 50s, a man in his 40s, and a man in his mid-20s. Joining the trio was a dog, police say.
The oldest man and the victim began to argue, police say. In the midst of the confrontation, the man in his 20s "stole [the victim's] backpack and purse and ran away," according to the SFPD.
As if that weren't enough, the dog that was with the three suspects then bit the victim, police say.
The remaining suspects and their pet then apparently beat a quick retreat, as police say that no arrests have been made in the case. The victim, who was injured by the dog attack, was transported to an area hospital for treatment. As of Tuesday morning, he was in stable condition and is expected to recover.
