According to Sgt. Danielle Newman, the victim was on the 500 block of Leavenworth at about 9 p.m. on Aug. 8 when a man approached her, knocked her to the ground, and dragged her down the street.
He then robbed her and fled the scene. The victim suffered multiple broken bones and bruises and is now recovering at a care facility, Newman says.
The suspect is described as a black man, between 40 and 50 years old. He has a tall, skinny face and was wearing a black knit cap and a dark-colored leather jacket. He's between 5-foot-10 and 6-feet tall.
If you see this guy or have any information about the incident, contact Sgt. Michael Zhang at (415) 345-7300. You can also call the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
San Francisco police need your help locating this man to your right who is accused of attacking and robbing an 87-year-old woman in the Tenderloin earlier this month.
