Definitely no way to treat a lady

A heartless punk chucked a 63-year-old woman to the pavement and walked away in the Fillmore neighborhood last week, cops said.

No explanation was given for why the man attacked the woman around 6:30 p.m. on Fillmore Street between Post and Sutter streets. Several people called cops and gave a detailed description of the thug. An officer tracked him down and arrested him for aggravated assault, police said.

The suspect “admitted to pushing the victim to the ground,” cops said.

The victim’s right knee and right hand were injured in the attack, police said. Medics treated her at the scene, they said.
