A duo of robbers gave a whole new meaning to "shopping at Union Square" over the weekend after robbing a man of his apparel as he walked near the city's bustling commercial district.
On Saturday, a man well-prepared for the San Francisco storms, was two blocks from Union Square at about 11 p.m. when two teens knocked him to the ground and stripped him of his shoes and umbrella.
The robbers pulled out a knife and demanded the man's basketball and rain gear, says Officer Gordon Shyy.
The robbers ran off with their new wardrobe. Meanwhile, the victim was treated for non life-threatening injuries and (hopefully) treated to a new pair of sneakers.
