    One teenage girl was hurt and a teenage boy had his phone stolen after a half-dozen teenagers used air freshener during a robbery on a bus in San Francisco Saturday afternoon, according to police.

    The six suspects were riding the bus near Fillmore and McAllister streets around 12:30 p.m. when one of the teenagers sprayed air freshener at the 13-year-old boy, according to police. The teenager then smacked the boy's phone out of his hands and grabbed it, police said.

    The teenage girl tried to intervene, but she was punched by one of the other suspects.

    The suspects, who range in age from 15 to 17 years, promptly hopped off the bus, according to police.

    The victim who was punched was treated at the scene, police said.

    Further information was not available.
