San Francisco police are looking for three men who savagely beat a 23-year-old Hayward man, kicking and punching him until he fell to the pavement.

The cops have released these photos of the identified suspects, who have been on the lam since the Jan. 29 assault. According to police, at about 2 a.m., the men approached the victim at  the corner of Polk and Elm streets and beat him until he lost consciousness. After the beating, the two men ran toward Van Ness Avenue, where it is believed they got into a black pickup truck that headed north.

  • 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.'"
