As the old adage goes -- no good deed goes unpunished. A samaritan discovered this when he tried to help another man who was getting beaten at a Muni stop this week.

Police report that a little before 8 p.m. on Wednesday, a man was standing at a Muni bus stop on the corner of Silver and Mission Streets, listening to music on his headphones. Three men walked up and surrounded him so he couldn't escape.

The three guys started punching him for no reason, knocking him to the ground, where they then continued beating the man.

Another person passing by stopped to try to help the victim. Sadly, he got his own beating when the three men turned on him, according to police.

The guys continued punching the second victim, but then suddenly stopped and ran off, leaving the two bleeding men behind.

  • 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.'"
