Police say they caught the person who they believe killed Robert Musial, the San Francisco man who was found mysteriously dead in Golden Gate Park on Friday evening.
The Examiner reports this morning that 23-year-old Marcus Herrera, a Santa Ana resident, was arrested while riding a Muni bus Sunday morning. He was booked into the San Francisco County Jail on suspicion of murder, robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon, said Sgt. Michael Andraychak.
Musial's brother, Stewart, told the Ex that his brother was hit in the back of the head with a skateboard, and his wallet had been stolen. A preliminary autopsy shows that Musial died from blunt-force trauma to the head.
Police were called to the park at about 7:30 p.m. on Friday where they found 55-year-old Musial unconscious. Witnesses say Musial had been sitting on a bench near the Sharon Art studio struggling to breath and calling for help. He lost consciousness as paramedics were en route.
"Investigators believe there were other people at the scene, and we're asking anyone with information to come forward," Andraychak said.
