A woman riding a Muni bus in the Bayview district was hospitalized yesterday afternoon after suffering injuries in a robbery.

The assault occurred around 4:11 p.m. near the corner of Third Street and Palou Avenue when a male suspect of unknown age boarded a bus and took a cellphone away from a 36-year-old female passenger.

When she attempted to get her device back, the suspect pushed her to the ground, causing head lacerations. The suspect fled on foot and was not arrested, and the victim was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

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.
