A man was pepper-sprayed and robbed of his camera on Saturday in the South of Market area, police said.

The 20-year-old victim was walking around 5th and Mission streets around 10 p.m. when he bumped into one of three men, aged 18 to 25, cops said. One of the three pepper-sprayed the man, another punched him in the face and the third thug took the camera from the victim’s hand.

The three thugs fled the scene. No arrest has been made.
