11:40 AM: An Oakland man was arrested last week for allegedly kicking a woman in the head while robbing her during Pride weekend in San Francisco last month, police said today.

Christopher Porter-Bailey, 23, was arrested Friday for the attack, which occurred near Market and Dolores streets at about 1:50 a.m. on June 30 after the Pink Saturday celebration.

The victim, a 28-year-old San Francisco woman, was robbed of her purse by a group of suspects and was knocked to the pavement. While she was down, one suspect kicked her in the head, causing her to lose consciousness.

Days later, police released surveillance footage of the attack, which sent the woman to the hospital. She has since been treated and released.

Investigators were eventually able to identify Porter-Bailey as the suspect who allegedly kicked the woman and arrested him, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

Porter-Bailey pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of second-degree robbery, assault causing great bodily injury and battery, district attorney’s office spokesman Alex Bastian said.

He remains in custody on $200,000 bail and will return to court on Aug. 9, Bastian said.

A San Francisco supervisor is joining the city’s top law enforcement officials this evening for a community meeting on the attack and other recent crimes in the Castro District and adjacent neighborhoods.

Supervisor Scott Wiener, who represents the Castro, will join Police Chief Greg Suhr, District Attorney George Gascon and others at the 6:30 p.m. meeting, which will take place at the Eureka Valley Recreation Center at 100 Collingwood St.

The meeting will focus on crime trends and strategies for combating them, according to Wiener’s office.

Police were eventually able to identify the suspect in the attack as Porter-Bailey, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

He was arrested and booked into custody on suspicion of robbery, aggravated assault and battery likely to produce serious injury, Esparza said.

Investigators are also trying to determine whether Porter-Bailey and other suspects in the group committed other robberies and assaults around the same time period along Market Street between Civic Center and the Castro District.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department’s Mission Station investigation team at (415) 558-5400.

      It’s now very clear – throughout urban America – why that action was so widespread and necessary in the past and that we need to do this AGAIN! If our thick-lipped friends do not clean up their act – and SOON! – a new Adolf Hitler will emerge, one who will choose the PROPER targets this time.

    This common riff-raff has come to my attention while walking in the same area.
    SFPD should be commended for their diligent police action protecting the public.
    These lazy parasites of entitlement need to be aware that their violence and crime pretty much puts up their rear end for collateral.
