TENDERLOIN—An assailant wielding a sack of rocks as a weapon knocked another man unconscious after striking him in the head in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood on Tuesday.
The victim, a 54-year-old San Francisco resident, was having a heated argument with his assailant, a man believed to be in his 40s.
The attack took place Tuesday evening at approximately 5:40 p.m. on the 100 block of Taylor Street in the Tenderloin. During the argument, the suspect chased the victim with either a sock or bag stuffed with rocks, a weapon that the victim was bludgeoned with until he lost conciseness.
The suspect then fled the scene and remains at large.
The victim was transported to a local hospital with injuries that have been termed non-lethal.
