San Francisco police need your help trying to track down this guy pictured to your right who allegedly attacked another man with a knife.

According to police, on Aug. 4 at about 1 a.m., the victim was on the corner of Union and Buchanan streets when the suspect assaulted the man, slicing him several times and leaving him with nerve damage to his hands.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he had surgery; he was later released from the hospital and is reportedly recovering at home.

However, the suspect, who fled the scene, remains at large. He is described as a white or Hispanic male, between the ages of 20 and 30. He is approximately 6-foot tall and weighs about170 pounds. The suspect has closely shaved hair and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

The cops were able to pull still images of the suspect from a surveillance camera near the incident. So have a close gander.

If anyone has information on the identification of the suspect, call Sergeant Donati at 614-3400 or leave an anonymous tip at 575-4444. Citizens may also text a tip at TIP411 and type 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.'"
