San Francisco police need your help locating this man to your right who is accused of attacking and robbing an 87-year-old woman in the Tenderloin earlier this month. 

According to Sgt. Danielle Newman, the victim was on the 500 block of Leavenworth at about 9 p.m. on Aug. 8 when a man approached her, knocked her to the ground, and dragged her down the street. 

He then robbed her and fled the scene. The victim suffered multiple broken bones and bruises and is now recovering at a care facility, Newman says.

The suspect is described as a black man, between 40 and 50 years old. He has a tall, skinny face and was wearing a black knit cap and a dark-colored leather jacket. He's between 5-foot-10 and 6-feet tall.

If you see this guy or have any information about the incident, contact Sgt. Michael Zhang at (415) 345-7300. You can also call the SFPD anonymous tip line 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.'"
