Man attacked, robbed at Castro dance club

A man suffered a concussion in an attack and robbery at a dance club in San Francisco’s Castro district early Saturday morning, police said today (Wednesday, June 3).

The incident occurred at 1:15 a.m. May 30 at a club at Market and Castro streets when “an unknown number of suspects approached” the 44-year-old victim, Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary.

After one of the suspects hit the man “over the head with an unknown object,” Esparza said, the man lost consciousness and awoke to find his cellphone, ATM card, driver’s license, keys, and cash had been taken.

The victim, who also suffered a bruised arm in the attack, took himself to the hospital.

Esparza didn’t share the name of the club where the incident happened, but The Café, 2369 Market, and Beaux, 2344 Market, are both near Castro and Market.

Café staff didn’t respond to requests for comment. Beaux co-owner Tim Eicher  said the incident didn’t appear to have occurred at his club.

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information in the case may call the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. People may also text a tip to TIP411. Type SFPD in the subject line. The incident number is 150482817.
