The attack occurred at about 8:10 a.m. Sunday at a Laundromat in the 300 block of Eddy Street.

The 63-year-old owner and a patron got into an argument and the suspect struck him in the head, knocking him to the ground, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are considered life-threatening, Shyy said.

The suspect fled but was later located and identified as 59-year-old Kenneth Morris, according to Shyy.

Morris, a San Francisco resident, was arrested on suspicion of assault and for two outstanding warrants, Shyy said.
