Police are looking for a woman who callously pushed a senior citizen out of his wheelchair and took off with it last night. 

According to police reports, the 64-year-old man was sitting in his wheelchair at UN Plaza at about 7:50 p.m. when an unknown woman came up behind him and hit him on the head. 

The woman then pushed the victim out of his chair, got it in, and fled the scene in the wheelchair. 

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. Neither the woman nor the wheelchair have been located. 

Police had no further details at this time.

  • 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.'"
