Muni Passengers Beaten, Robbed, and Stabbed in Two Separate Incidents
Muni riders have had an unusually bad streak of luck as of late.
Yesterday evening, a 68-year-old woman was punched and robbed by a group of female teens while riding Muni; earlier that afternoon, a bus passenger lost it and reportedly stabbed two riders and two police officers before being hauled to jail, according to the Ex.
Then today, two Muni buses crashed, injuring 15 people, including seven kids.
Kinda makes the $2 fare seem like less of a bargain, doesn't it?
Yesterday evening around 8:30, police say an older woman was riding an outbound train at Third and Carroll Streets when two teenage girls approached her. One of the teens punched the woman in the face, while the other quickly snatched up her two purses she was holding, according to police.
After the robbery, the duo ran off the train in an unknown direction, making off with the contents in both purses, according to SFPD spokesperson Gordon Shyy.
Authorities are in the process of reviewing surveillance footage from the train's cameras.
About four hours earlier, a female passenger reportedly flipped out and stabbed two people on board the 14-Mission bus. Afterward, she stabbed two cops as they tried to arrest her. Zsa Zsa Roundtree, 49, was arrested at the 16th Street Mission stop on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Good luck with your next trip on Muni.
