The suspect is described as a White male adult, 25-35 years of age, approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing approximately 200 pounds, heavy build, curly brown hair and was last seen wearing a dark jacket, dark pants, and a baseball hat.  He is considered dangerous, so members of the public are advised to avoid him and call police immediately if he is spotted.

Accoding to an article in the Bay Area Reporter by Seth Hemmelgarn, 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 was left with serious head injuries and was transported to San Francisco General Hospital. He has since been released and is recovering at home.
