At approximately 7:50 P.M., on the 2100 block of Pacific Avenue, the suspects robbed a 29-year-old woman, who was struck by the suspects' vehicle as they sped off. The victim suffered life-threatening injuries at the time of the incident.

A description of the suspects was broadcast and Northern Station Street Crimes Unit officers located and arrested the suspects at Bush and Divisadero street at approximately 8:00 P.M., ten minutes after the last robbery. The suspects were charged for multiple counts of robbery and assault.
