    San Francisco police are beefing up patrols at Twin Peaks after a tourist was attacked and robbed Wednesday afternoon.

    "As she walked down th hill she was met by two suspects," San Francisco Police Lt. Jay Newman said. "They approached her, they maced her and robbed her."

    Police flushed the victim's eyes with water on the scene.

    Also on Wednesday, robbers smashed a vehicle's window while visitors checked out the evening view at Twin Peaks.

    A woman who lives nearby said crime in the area is nothing new, adding that mailboxes get broken into constantly on her street.

    The resident said she thinks police are too focused on the upcoming Super Bowl festivities and should be focusing on protecting neighborhoods. San Francisco police said the Twin Peaks neighborhood is a priority.

    "We are working with undercover units to combat auto break-ins and any other illegal activity that takes place," Newman said.
