A man was beaten Sunday night in San Francisco’s Castro district by two men who attacked him and took his phone.

The March 6 incident started at 11 p.m. at 18th and Castro streets as the victim, 24, left a bar, according to police.

One suspect asked to borrow the victim’s phone, and he let him. When he asked for his phone back, the suspect said “he didn’t have it,” Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary.

The two men started “fighting over the phone,” and a second suspect joined in, Esparza said. The men punched and kicked the victim several times and fled with the phone.

The victim suffered lacerations to his face, elbow, forehead, and hip.

The suspects are described only as black men between the ages of 20 and 30.

No arrests have been made.
