One in a string of San Francisco pepper spray muggings happened in Lower Haight last Wednesday night: two men sprayed a man with pepper spray before stealing his iPod, wallet and backpack on the 700 block of Page Street.
Thirty minutes earlier in the Mission, police believe the same two men were to blame for the mugging of a woman, 41. They took her cell phone and kicked her after spraying her with pepper spray and then took off.
Later, after the Lower Haight mugging, another pepper spray mugging occurred in Lower Pac Heights. The woman who was the victim of that attack ended up in the hospital.
Police are investigating the string of attacks.
