A 32-year-old woman is recovering this morning after she was beaten during an attempted robbery in Noe Valley last night. 

Officer Gordon Shyy says that the woman was walking at 26th and Dolores streets at about 10:11 p.m. when two armed men abruptly knocked her to the ground. 

One of the men punched her repeatedly and threw her head into the ground while the other man tried to snatch her purse. A vehicle approached and saw the assault. The driver flashed his headlights and both men fled the scene empty-handed. They fired one gunshot in the woman's direction as they ran, according to police reports. 

Shyy says the Good Samaritan drove the victim her a few blocks away from the crime scene and called 911.

The woman was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for a head laceration. Police had no further information about the suspects other than they were two black men in their 20s.

  • 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.'"
