Those robbers really took the piss out of him
If you're a robber looking to score an easy victim -- urine luck!

Police say that a San Francisco man was robbed as he urinated in an alley at about 1:55 a.m. on Friday. According to police, the man had met friends at a nearby bar, and as they were deciding where to go next, the man went to take a leak near Fresno Street and Romolo Place. Just as he was relieving himself, the three suspects walked up to him, knocked him in the head, and stole his tablet computer, said Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

The three suspects ran off before the man had a chance to zip up his pants.
The victim flagged down an officer and they drove around the neighborhood looking for the suspects. Shortly after the robbery, the victim spotted the trio walking along Broadway and Kearny Street and identified them as the three who had robbed him, police said.

Officers arrested Barry Gwen, 19, of Oakland, on suspicion of robbery; 19-year-old Arlene George from San Pablo, who had the tablet computer on her, on suspicion of possession of stolen property. The third suspect, 18-year-old Rashawn Jones of San Francisco was arrested for a marijuana violation, according to police.

It is what it is and sometimes we need to see what it is.

did the victim get a citation for public urination?

This might be an interesting method to prevent jerks from stinking up our streets by urinating in public.

This is intolerable. Pissing in North Beach alleys is a time-honored tradition going back generations! I speak from first-hand experience.

"This is intolerable. Pissing in North Beach alleys is a time-honored tradition going back generations! I speak from first-hand experience."

Pondering but not too deeply and for not too long, as to whether thine first-hand experienc is better than "second-hand" or "third-hand" experience.

Merely pondering.

No condemnation of any type intended, y'all

Huddled in my hovel, my shanty atop the Ozarks Plateau so far away in many ways from my various east bay abodes of yore.

"Bust 'em!!" Good show!!   'Three strikes' is good policy , too.

Glad they caught the suspects, but three strikes is moronic and myopic. An experienced and knowledgeable judiciary renders moot the need to legislate the bench judge into impotence.

3 strikes is good policy if you own stock in a private prison, little else.
