And you thought you worked in a hostile environment.

A 47-year-old man was hammered -- literally -- by his co-worker yesterday morning as the two crossed paths unexpectedly in the Mission Bay neighborhood.

According to police, the victim was on the 800 block of Seventh Street near a construction site when he walked past his co-worker, who whacked him in the back of the head with a hammer.

According to Officer Carlos Manfredi, the two construction workers had gotten into a verbal fight seven months ago when they were working at a different construction job. The victim believed the two had resolved their issues, but clearly they hadn't -- and it's fair to say they still haven't.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries; however, he is conscious and breathing.The suspect, only described as a Hispanic man in his 30s, ran away from the scene before police got there, and is still at large.

"We don't have him in custody, but we do have information about who he is, and so it's a matter of time before we capture him," Manfredi told us.

  • 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.'"
