A group of 12 suspects assaulted and robbed a 17-year-old in Dolores Park yesterday afternoon, police reported.

While the teenager was in the park between 2pm and 6:35pm, he was approached by the group. The suspects assaulted him, and then took his belt, cellphone, wallet, and money.

The 12 suspects then fled the scene. Police did not release further details about the suspects. No arrests were made, and the victim was not injured.
