Delivery Truck Workers Beaten Over Loaves of Bread

Posted By on Fri, Oct 24, 2014 at 12:31 PM

San Francisco police are investigating an unexpected food crime, involving a pair of hungry robbers who attacked two men and stole loaves of bread from a delivery truck this morning. 

According to police, a truck loaded with delicious bread was parked at the 500 block of Florida Street at about 2:30 a.m. when two unknown men started their version of carb-loading, pilfering loaves of bread from the back of the truck. Two of the delivery truck employees saw what was happening and attempted to stop the theft.

Both men began beating the delivery truck drivers, fracturing one of their eyes and bruising both their faces, says Officer Albie Esparza. 

After the beat-down, the crooks grabbed as much bread as they could and bolted the scene. 

Some people just aren't willing to shell out $4 for toast.

  • 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.'"
