Woman's Cell Phone Stolen While Texting

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2012 at 3:03 PM


We already know that texting and driving don't mix; neither does texting and walking.

A 38-year-old woman was walking along the 700 block of Taylor Street after 8 p.m. last night while texting on her cell phone when a man grabbed it out of her hand and another man pushed her to the ground.

The two fled on foot and haven't been caught. They are described as two black men between 20 and 25. One was wearing a red jacket and blue jeans and the other was wearing a light blue hoodie and blue jeans.

SFPD's Officer Gordon Shyy says criminals are looking for people who aren't paying attention, making them easy victims. His advise is not to use cell phones (or other electronic gizmos) while walking from place to place.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
