SAN FRANCISCO—The San Francisco Police Department are asking the public for their assistance regarding a New Years Eve assault that occurred in 2019.

At approximately 7:15 p.m. a family of five was walking eastbound on the 1200 block of Bay Street on December 31, 2019. At the same time, two adult males exited a vehicle on the corner of Gough Street and started walking in the same direction as the family. One of the males was carrying a backpack and a pizza box while the other was carrying a brown duffle-like bag. 

Both groups walked about 50 feet away from each other for about a block. The male with the pizza box, placed it on the ground, ran up to the family and pushed one of the juvenile family members against a brick wall. The suspect turned around and fled in the opposite direction. The father of the juvenile chased the suspect, but lost track of him. The victim was treated for injuries at the scene of the assault. 

The SFPD reported that the suspect is described as a six-foot Caucasian male. He has brown hair, a bushy beard and is of medium build. The suspect was wearing a green flannel and jeans at the time of the assault.
