- The UPS delivery driver, identified as Minh by KPIX 5, told officers that “he had just loaded his cart with boxes for delivery when an unknown male suspect took one of the boxes.”
- When he confronted the suspect, the driver was punched and they struggled over the package.
- The SFPD said the “victim was struck by a vehicle, driven by a second suspect. The first suspect got into the vehicle and the two sped away.”
- The victim was able to retrieve the package and was taken to “a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”
Other details: The SFPD Robbery Detail is investigating the case.
- In a statement to NextShark, UPS said, “We are thankful that our driver is safe, and we are cooperating with the responding authorities in their investigation.”
- Authorities have yet to identify the suspects or make any arrests.
- As Minh is the only provider of the household, his daughter set up a GoFundMe to support the family. The campaign has raised over $7,000 as of this writing.
