Man Clinging to Life After Being Kicked in the Head Repeatedly

Posted By on Fri, Jul 12, 2013 at 12:20 PM


Update 2:55 p.m.: SFPD Officer Tracy Turner is now saying the victim is a man, not a woman.

Original Story: A 32-year-old woman man is in critical condition this morning after he was kicked multiple times in the head during a fight in the Tenderloin last night.

According to police, the woman man got into a fight with two other men on the 400 block of O'Farrell Street; one of the guys threw her him to the ground and kicked her him in the head several times.

The second man then jumped on her his head with both feet and kicked the woman one last time. A parole agent spotted the two men and arrested them, according to police. Police will be providing more information on the arrest soon.

The victim was taken to a local hospital and is being treated for life-threatening head trauma.

"It's an egregious crime," said Officer Albie Esparza. "Anyone with any information as far as this case goes, we ask them to contact SFPD -- we want to make sure we get these people behind bars where they belong."

  • 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.'"
