A man who set up a table with political literature and a sign supporting President Barack Obama was attacked in San Francisco's North Panhandle neighborhood on Monday morning, a police captain said Tuesday.

The attack happened at about 11:30 a.m. Monday in the 1200 block of Fell Street, where the victim, a 29-year-old Daly City man, had set up his table, said Capt. Denis O'Leary of the Police Department's Park Station.

A man and woman approached the victim, tore one of the signs and shook the table, causing the political literature to fall to the ground.

The suspects also kicked the man in the hand, O'Leary said.

The man and woman, who had dogs with them, fled south on Broderick Street before officers arrived, and haven't been located, O'Leary said.

The victim said the pair made "no mention of a political affiliation," O'Leary said. "It's just unusual that they took offense to him and his sign."

The first suspect is described as an Asian man with long black hair who was wearing a gray baseball cap, gray sweatshirt and dark jeans, O'Leary said.

The other is a white woman who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall with long, curly brown hair, he said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
