Two women had cellphones slapped out of their hands in San  Francisco's South of Market neighborhood early this morning, police said.
    The robberies were reported at 1:32 a.m. near the intersection of  Folsom and Eighth streets.

    The victims, ages 25 and 42, each were holding their cellphones  when they were approached by two suspects, according to police.     The two suspects each slapped the phones away from the victims'  hands and onto the ground, then picked the phones up and fled, police said.
    The suspects, men in their early to mid-20s, have not been found.
    Anyone with information about the robberies is encouraged to call  the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by  text message to TIP411.
