Man Critically Injured In Early Morning Attack

A man was critically injured in an attack in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood on Monday morning, police said today.

The attack was reported around 6:30 a.m. near Gough Street and Golden Gate Avenue, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

A car pulled up to the victim, a man in his 40s, and multiple suspects got out, according to police.

Investigators were told by a third party that the victim told the suspects that they robbed his sister, then at least one suspect struck him in the head with some sort of bottle, Shyy said.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for head trauma. His wounds are considered life-threatening, and police have not been able to talk to him to find out more about the attack, Shyy said.

The suspects fled and had not been found as of this morning. Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
