San Francisco: Man beaten, robbed of motorized wheelchair

SAN FRANCISCO – A 60-year-old man was beaten and robbed of his motorized wheelchair in San Francisco last week, authorities said.

The victim was traveling on Mary Street about 9 p.m. on Feb. 17 when four male suspects approached him and commented on his Quantum Q6 Edge HD wheelchair, the San Francisco Police Department said in a news release Tuesday. One then punched the victim in the face while the others dragged him out of his wheelchair and threw him into the street.

Police said the suspects also kicked the victim several times before riding away with his wheelchair.

The victim crawled out of the street and back to his home, said police, adding that his injuries were not considered life-threatening.
