The San Francisco Police Department has released a sketch of a suspect who recently attacked a man in the Castro area, leaving him with “serious” head injuries.

According to an SFPD news release, the incident started June 8 between 12:45 and 1:15 a.m. when the victim saw a man who appeared to be homeless “preparing to spend the night” in front of a residence near Hancock and Sanchez streets. The victim asked the man to sleep somewhere else, and “the suspect became aggressive,” police said.

When the victim said he was going to call the police, the other man attacked him, knocking him to the ground.

The victim, who “sustained serious head injuries,” was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, according to the release. He’s since been released and is recovering.

“The suspect is described as a white male adult, approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing approximately 200 pounds,” police said, adding he has “a heavy build, curly brown hair and was last seen wearing a dark jacket, dark pants, and a baseball hat.”

People who observe the suspect “are advised not to contact him and call police,” the police statement says.

Anyone with information on the identification of the suspect is asked to contact Sergeant Waaland at Mission Station at (415) 558-5485.

The anonymous tip line is (415) 575- 4444. People may also text a tip to TIP411. Type SFPD in the subject line.
