San Francisco police say they have arrested a second man in the April 27 slaying of 55-year-old Robert Musial.

Sgt. Michael Andraychak tells us that they booked 33-year-old Jeremy Brinker in Weed, Calif., and charged him with homicide, conspiracy, robbery, and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Brinker joins 23-year-old Marcus Herrera, who was booked into San Francisco County Jail last week. Police arrested Herrera, a Santa Ana resident, as he rode on the Muni bus through town. Musial's brother, Stewart, later told the Examiner at the time that Robert had been hit over the head with a skateboard and his wallet was stolen. Police only confirmed that Robert Musial had died from blunt-force trauma to the head.

Police were called to the Sharon Art Studio about about 7:30 p.m. on April 27 after witnesses said they had seen Musial sitting on a bench calling for help and struggling to breath. He lost consciousness as paramedics made their way to the scene. He died shortly after they arrived.

The next day, Stewart went back to the scene with some friends to talk to witnesses and look for clues surrounding his brother's death. It was this trip back to the park that led police to Herrera.

Anyone with information on this homicide is asked to call the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 and include "SFPD" in the subject line.

  • 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.'"
