SFPD Officers Injured During Giants World Series Celebrations

Multiple San Francisco police officers were injured while attempting to disperse crowds and extinguish bonfires during celebrations of the San Francisco Giants’ World Series victory Wednesday evening.

Officers were assaulted with bottles on Market Street in the Mission District, while others in the Southern district were stuck with bottles, firecrackers, and M80s, according to police spokesman Gordon Shyy.

The objects were thrown at officers as they attempted to disperse crowds gathered in the streets while also assisting firefighters as they extinguished bonfires, Shyy said.

Multiple officers suffered minor injuries, while one officer was taken to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment.

No suspect information is currently available, according to police.
