SAN FRANCISCO -- A man was pepper sprayed and robbed by three teens after exiting a sandwich shop in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood on Tuesday night, police said.

The 46-year-old victim had parked his truck outside the store and gone inside, and when he returned, he saw the three teens jumping on the vehicle's bumper, according to police.
