A 53-year-old man was mugged by two other men in South San Francisco early this morning, police said.
The victim was walking near Maple and Baden avenues at about 4:35 a.m. when he noticed he was being followed by an older-model silver four-door Chrysler, according to South San Francisco police.
Two people in the car demanded that the victim hand over his wallet, police said. When he refused, the suspects approached him and punched him in the face several times.
The attackers did not get the man's wallet, but stole other personal belongings, police said. They then got back into the car, which was last seen heading west in the 400 block of Baden Avenue.
The victim, who is employed as a welder, suffered a bruised and swollen face but was not seriously injured, police said.
The suspects were both described as Hispanic men between 25 and 30 years old, around 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing around 210 pounds. One was wearing a white T-shirt and the other had on a black hoodie.
Anyone with information about the suspects or the assault is asked to call the South San Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-8900 or the anonymous tip line at (650) 952-2244.
