Man seeking roommate who won't burn him -- literally.

Don't be surprised if you come across that kind of ad on Craigslist after what this Tenderloin man has been through. 

Police say that a 47-year-old man is in the hospital today with serious burns on his face and wrists after his roommate tossed hot cooking oil at him during an early-morning fracas.

The attack happened at about 2:45 a.m. on Tuesday when the two housemates began arguing inside their apartment, which is located on the 300 block of Jones street. According to police, the suspect, a 48-year-old man, got a little overheated and flung a pan of hot cooking oil in his roommate's face.

The victim ran to the Tenderloin police station to report the incident. Police arrested the roommate on suspicion of aggravated assault.

Needless to say, the two roommates are like oil and water -- they just don't mix.

  • 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.'"
