SAN FRANCISCO: Police Ask For Help In Brutal Pink Saturday Attack
Via the Mercury News:
Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man that brutally beat and helped rob a woman and may have attacked others early Sunday after the city's "Pink Saturday" Pride weekend event. The attack is not believed to have been a hate crime, police said. Around 1:50 a.m., the woman was approached by a group of men and women along Market Street between Castro Street and Civic Center, according to San Francisco police. The group pushed the woman to the ground and took unspecified belongings. In a video provided by police, the woman struggles to stand up as the group walks away. As one man passes her, he turns and viciously kicks her in the face. Police said the kick left the woman, who lives in the Central Valley, unconscious; she was recovering at her home Friday night, according to San Francisco police Ofc.
