Two people were beaten and robbed last night in Twin Peaks on a residential street that leads to the well-visited viewing area.

Around 10:15pm, a 45-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man were at the corner of Twin Peaks Boulevard and Burnett Avenue when the suspect, who was not described, walked up to them and punched the man.

The suspect then struck the woman and snatched her handbag before fleeing on foot.

Both victims were transported to a hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries, and the suspect was not apprehended. 

Anyone who has information about this incident is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.

Here’s why we usually don’t include suspect descriptions in crime reports.
