Because milking a cow isn't an option in the Bayview, a 38-year-old San Francisco man allegedly robbed a local restaurant for some milk.
The bizarre incident happened at about 1 p.m. yesterday when the thirsty man walked into a restaurant on the 3800 block of Third Street, grabbed a bottle of milk from the fridge and guzzled it down as if he was in his own kitchen.
After quenching his thirst, the suspect put the half-consumed milk back. The restaurateur informed the milk mugger that he had to pay for his drink, but the robber declined and instead tossed a pot of hot coffee at the victim.
The milk thief bolted from the restaurant but only made it across the street before police nabbed him. He was hauled him to jail where there was no use in crying over spilled milk.
