A 24-year-old man who’d been walking with his boyfriend was beaten with a golf club and bitten by another man in San Francisco’s Duboce Triangle┬ádistrict Thursday night.

The incident occurred in the 2100 block of Market Street, near the former Home restaurant and a Safeway supermarket, at 10:35 p.m.

The victim and his boyfriend were walking down the street “when for no apparent reason,” the suspect “flicked a cigarette” at the victim, according to Officer Giselle Talkoff, a police spokeswoman.

The victim and suspect got into a physical fight, and the suspect hit the victim “numerous times to the head and body with a golf club,” Talkoff said. The two men “fell to the ground” when the suspect bit the victim’s inner left thigh. The suspect fled west on Market.

The victim’s injuries were considered non-life threatening and he refused medical treatment.

Talkoff described the suspect as an Asian male between 20 and 25 years old.
