A 25-year-old man was arrested early this morning after he allegedly beat his coworker at a club and threatened to have a woman murdered. 

Police say they were called out to the venue on the 100 block of Ellis Street at about 2:50 a.m. after two men, who reportedly worked at the club, got into a fight. According to police reports, the victim attempted to kick the suspect out of the venue and when he opened the door to boot him, the suspect began beating on him. 

He knocked the victim to the ground, punched him, kicked him, and stomped on his head, police say.

When a 30-year-old woman attempted to intervene, the suspect threatened to have her murdered. Witnesses contacted police who arrested the suspect, 25-year-old Leon Hart of Hayward. 

He was booked in County Jail and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, and felony threats. He also happened to have a warrant out for his arrest. 

The victim, who suffered abrasions to his head and ribs was treated at the scene.

  • 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.'"
