The attack was reported at 11:16 p.m. Thursday near 25th and Connecticut streets, where officers were at the scene to disperse people drinking and being loud, police said.

A 37-year-old man tried to return to the party and was approached by an officer. The man punched the officer in the face, and then was taken into custody, according to police.

The officer transported himself to a hospital to be treated for his injuries while the suspect, whose name was not immediately available, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for a complaint of pain to his shoulder, police said.
