SFGate Bay Area News Stories, Wed, 13 Dec 2017
A 78-year-old man was assaulted by one of four robbers who kicked in the door of his home in the Sunset District of San Francisco, took his money and ransacked his residence, police said Wednesday. The home-invasion robbery occurred between 10 and 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday at the victim’s house on the 400 block of Noriega Street, near 11th Avenue, police said. Once the bandits forced their way into the home, they demanded the victim fork over money. Despite giving them cash, one of the robbers hit the victim, police said. The suspects then ransacked his house and fled the scene. The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Cierra and Josh Barton purchased a new Honda CRV at the beginning of summer. It was stolen while parked in front of their Livermore apartment complex at the end of August. Four months later, Hayward police called the Bartons to say they had recovered their vehicle. "What condition will it be in? Burnt out? Gutted?" Cierra Barton recalled thinking as she and her husband drove to the holding lot. "I was imaging the worst when we went to pick it up." What they found, to their surprise, was a car in relatively good shape – a few dents, a rattling hood. But in the back and front windows were Lyft stickers, Cierra Barton said. The odometer had spiked from 2,000 miles to more than 13,000. And in the back seat, Cierra said she found a pillow, a jacket and a stuffed animal.
