San Francisco police are looking for three men who savagely beat a 23-year-old Hayward man, kicking and punching him until he fell to the pavement.
The cops have released these photos of the identified suspects, who have been on the lam since the Jan. 29 assault. According to police, at about 2 a.m., the men approached the victim at the corner of Polk and Elm streets and beat him until he lost consciousness. After the beating, the two men ran toward Van Ness Avenue, where it is believed they got into a black pickup truck that headed north.
The victim, who has not been named, remains in serious condition and might not fully recover from his injuries, police said.
Officer Carlos Manfredi says that two of the suspects are described as Asian males. The first suspect is a 5-foot-9 man, weighing about 210 pounds. The second suspect is described as a 5-foot-6 man weighing 135 pounds. The third person, who has only been identified as a person of interest in the case, is described as a light-skinned Hispanic male.
