A man was beaten and had his electronic cigarette stolen at a residence on the 2600 block of Meath Lane Sunday night, according to South San Francisco police. The victim was visiting several people at the home and was in the garage when two of his acquaintances started punching him in the head, causing bruising, according to police.
The victim fell to the ground and one of the suspects took an electronic cigarette from him while the other suspect tried to take his shoes, according to police.
The victim was able to escape and call police from his home. The two suspects were located in a nearby parking lot and the victim positively identified them as the suspects who robbed him.
