Two women were attacked on Pink Saturday in what police are saying is a possible hate crime.

At about 5:33 p.m., a 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old woman were walking south along Ninth Street near Mission Street when a group of six men approached and began kicking and punching them.

One of the suspects made a homophobic comment before fleeing the scene, says Officer Albie Esparza.

Both the victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where one was treated for a broken wrist and the other was treated for a head abrasion.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call SFPD at (415) 575-4444.

  • 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.'"
