Two men were recently attacked incidents in the Castro district – one after an argument and the other during a robbery.

The first incident occurred at about 10 a.m. Saturday near the Castro Safeway when the suspect, 25, and the victim, 26, got into a verbal argument in the 2000 block of Market Street, police said. The suspect chased the victim and hit him with a metal pipe.

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have been reported.

The second incident happened between midnight and 12:30 a.m. Tuesday at Market and Castro streets. Police said that the victim, 53, was walking down Market when the suspect started speaking to him. The suspect then pushed the victim down, went through his pockets, and stole his phone and wallet.

The suspect is described only as a Hispanic male who appeared to be 20 to 25 years old. No arrests were made.
