Three Guys Beat Man Unconscious, Drag Him to the Street

Posted By on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 at 9:01 AM


A man is in critical condition this morning after he was brutally beaten and robbed in the Tenderloin last night.

According to police, the man was at the United Nations Plaza at about 7:42 p.m. when three men attacked. Witnesses told police that the first man punched the victim in the head, knocking him unconscious.

A second man then dragged the victim into the street, and a third man rifled through the victim's pockets, said Officer Gordon Shyy.

The victim, only described as a man between the ages of 40 and 45, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

"It appears it was a robbery or attempted robbery," Shyy said. "We're not sure what is missing from the victim's property."

  • 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.'"
