Woman's Cell Phone Stolen While Texting

We already know that texting and driving don't mix; neither does texting and walking.

A 38-year-old woman was walking along the 700 block of Taylor Street after 8 p.m. last night while texting on her cell phone when a man grabbed it out of her hand and another man pushed her to the ground.
The two fled on foot and haven't been caught. They are described as two black men between 20 and 25. One was wearing a red jacket and blue jeans and the other was wearing a light blue hoodie and blue jeans.

SFPD's Officer Gordon Shyy says criminals are looking for people who aren't paying attention, making them easy victims. His advise is not to use cell phones (or other electronic gizmos) while walking from place to place.

In the Examiner or SFGate , it would've been " two men between 20 and 25."
