A man was left with non-life threatening injuries early Sunday morning after he was beaten in San Francisco’s Castro district.

The assault started at 12:10 a.m. December 11 at 18th and Collingwood streets when the victim was following the suspect in his vehicle, according to police.

After the men stopped their vehicles, the suspect “got out of his car, took out an unknown weapon, opened [the victim’s] door,” and hit him “several times causing injuries,” Officer Giselle Talkoff, a police spokeswoman, said in a summary. The suspect then drove away westbound on 18th Street. The victim, whose age wasn’t listed, was taken to a hospital.

The suspect is described as a black male between 30 and 40 years old. No arrests have been made.


In another Castro incident, bags of clothing and a laptop were taken from a home in the 300 block of Sanchez Street Friday morning, Talkoff said.

The burglary took place between 12 and 7 a.m. Friday, December 9 as the victim, 29, slept. He found when he woke up that the items had been taken. A description of the suspect wasn’t available.
