Suspects Steal Man's Money, Hair During Assault

South San Francisco police are searching for a group of men who allegedly assaulted a Texas man on Gateway Boulevard.

Police are searching for a group of men who, during an assault and robbery of a Texas man Monday night, stole a chunk of the man's hair in addition to his personal property.

The 34-year-old out-of-state tourist had been walking in the 100 block of Gateway Boulevard around 10 p.m. when he was assaulted by four to six men, police said.

The suspects knocked the man, of Southlake, Texas, to the ground and stole his money. As he lay on the ground, one of the men produced a silver pocket knife, which he used to cut a clump of hair from the victim's head, police said.

The suspects, who are described as men in their early 30s who wore dark clothing, fled on foot.

Anyone with information is asked to contact South San Francisco police at (650) 877-8900.

This needs to stop! Don't know if this fella was a tourist or not, we don't get many tourist in SSF - but whether he was or not, dont' give our city a bad rap by assaulting people! And really -- four to six of you against one? Cowards and stupid! Yes this makes me angry - what's next, assaulting old folks and children? And what's with cutting some of his hair? Weird, coward and stupid!

It is not unheard of for people to take a late evening stroll. Should we really expect that we have to be locked in after dark? If that is the case, our society has grown too accepting of violence in our lives.
