A 22-year-old man was attacked and beaten Saturday night after he went on a nighttime cruise on the San Francisco Bay. 

The trouble started at about 12:50 a.m. when the boat returned to shore at Kelly and Townsend and a trio of passengers got into an argument, says Officer Gordon Shyy. The two suspects — an Asian woman and a black man — began arguing with a third man, which quickly escalated into a fistfight.After knocking the victim to the ground, the male and female continued kicking and hitting the man until he lost consciousness, police said. The attackers then fled the scene and have not been caught. 

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for a minor head injury. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact 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.'"
