San Francisco police are looking for a man who reportedly beat up a homeless man as he slept on a park bench in Golden Gate Park.
According to Sgt. Danielle Newman, the transient was known to frequent the area where he was sleeping. Yesterday at about 2 p.m., he was napping on a bench at the intersection of JFK Drive and the Great Highway when an unknown man woke him up in the most unpleasant way.
Newman says the suspect -- only described as a 30 to 40-year-old man -- kicked the homeless man in the face without provocation. The man ran off in an unknown direction after the attack.
The 53-year-old victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he's being treated for a broken nose and a black eye.
