Hump Day was quite a steep hill for this San Francisco man to climb.

On Wednesday, just before midnight, a 35-year-old man  pulled over at Evans and Cesar Chavez after he got a flat tire. As the unfortunate man was changing his tire, another man approached him, pulled out a gun, and demanded his wallet, according to police.

After the victim handed over his wallet, the robber took the cash out, and, because that wasn't satisfying enough, he hit the victim over the head with his gun, said Officer Gordon Shyy.

The suspect, who was only described as a roughly 40-year-old man, ran off. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a laceration to his head.

Hopefully, the weekend will treat him well.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
