Some crooks are hungry for your money and gadgets and others are just hungry.

Police say two guys robbed a pizza delivery man last night of his pie and some chicken wings at about 6 p.m. in the city's Western Addition neighborhood.

Here's what happened, according to Officer Gordon Shyy:

The pizza delivery guy -- a 20-year-old man -- was walking on the 1800 block of Eddy Street to deliver an order. As he walked into the parking lot of the residence, the suspect -- who police believe placed the order -- approached the victim.

A second man appeared and asked the pizza guy why the bill was so high. The two suspects then tried to convince the delivery man to come back to their place so they could pay him for the pizza.

Feeling uneasy by this suggestion, the pizza guy started to walk away. That's when one of the guys pushed him to the ground, causing him to drop the food. The thieves snatched up the box of pizza and the wings and ran off.

Police have not yet found the pizza purloiners.

  • 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.'"
