San Francisco Police need your help finding two wanted suspects who police say dragged a man into the street and beat him until he lost consciousness.

The incident happened on Sept. 17 about 6 p.m., when four men were chasing the victim on the 800 block of Clay Street. The victim tried to hide in a nearby business but the group of men found him.

The guys carried the victim out to the street where they severely beat him until he was knocked out, said Officer Albie Esparza.

The men stole the victim's stuff and ran off. A few minutes passed before the victim awoke and attempted to walk to a business, hoping to call 911.

Unfortunately, the suspects were still around. They attacked the man again, and stole his phone -- and his car; the suspects jumped into the victim's vehicle and drove off, according to police.

SFPD gang task officers arrested two suspects; however, two more are on the lam. The two outstanding suspects have been identified as: Solomon Soohoo, 31, and  20-year-old Curtis Leong. Both men have warrants for their arrest and are wanted for kidnapping, burglary, robbery, and assault, according to police.

The two suspects could be in San Francisco or in the East Bay. If you see these guys or know anything about where they are, please dial 911 now. You may also contact the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 with SFPD in the field.

  • 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.'"
