Man hit with bat after Castro argument

A man was hit with a baseball bat as he ran from a store in San Francisco’s Castro district this week.

The incident, which started with “a verbal argument,” occurred at 12:45 a.m. Sunday, June 21 in the 3900 block of 18th Street, near Sanchez Street, according to Officer Grace Gatpandan, a police spokeswoman.

As the victim, 44, argued with another man Sunday, the victim kicked the shop’s front door, causing the glass to shatter. The suspect chased him from the store with the bat and hit him in the elbow and on the back of the legs with it, Gatpandan said.

The victim suffered a broken elbow and a contusion to the back of his legs. The suspect was described as a white male age 35 to 40.

In another recent Castro incident, a woman was robbed at 18th and Hartford streets Saturday, June 20.

The victim, a 26-year-old woman, was walking at 9:40 p.m. when the suspect approached her, grabbed her purse, and shook it. The woman’s tablet and perfume fell out. The man took the items and fled on foot.

The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s. The victim sustained redness to her neck.

No arrests have been reported in either case.

Anyone with information in the cases 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.
