A man was assaulted and two homes were burglarized in San Francisco’s Castro district in recent days.

The beating occurred Friday, August 21 around 10:30 to 10:50 p.m. at 18th and Douglass streets.

The suspect approached the victim, who had just left a bar, and punched him in the head.

The victim, 41, fell “and continued to be assaulted,” Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary. The suspect then fled the scene.

No description of the suspect was available.

The victim was left with bruising to the face and a laceration to the eye. He declined to be taken to the hospital. Nothing was taken in the incident.

The most recent burglary occurred at 10:56 p.m. Tuesday, August 25 in the 500 block of Sanchez Street.

The suspect entered the premises while the male victims, who are 55 and 50 years old, were home. The suspect “kicked in two locked doors, destroyed the house alarm system and system panel, and shattered a glass door panel,” Esparza said. The suspect, described only as a white man in his 30s, then fled.

Another Castro burglary occurred sometime between 10:30 p.m. Sunday, August 23 and 8:30 a.m. Monday, August 24 in the 4000 block of 18th Street.

In that incident, a 25-year-old man woke up to find that his computer, bike, and gym bag had been stolen as he slept. No suspect description was available.

Anyone with information about the cases may contact the police anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the start of the message. The incident numbers are: 150732747 for the assault, 150745916 for the burglary on Sanchez, and 150740615 for the burglary on 18th.
