A 30-year-old San Francisco man has reconfirmed for the world that dating indeed sucks.

The victim went online recently where he met a girl; the two connected so he set up a date for them to finally meet. Wednesday was the big day, presumably: the two were scheduled to meet somewhere in the Outer Mission.

But when the woman showed up, she had two other men were with her -- and they weren't there for a foursome, according to police.

The two men pointed a gun at the unsuspecting bachelor and demanded his wallet. The victim handed it over and the three suspects, including his date, bolted the scene in a black sedan, says Officer Gordon Shyy.

Later that night, officers spotted the suspect vehicle in the Bayview; police attempted to stop the car, but the driver sped off. A pursuit ensued through the neighborhood and ended at Woolsey and University where five people were detained and taken to Ingelside station, Shyy says.

No word on whether the victim has since taken his online profile down.

  • 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.'"
