Doorman attacked with bottle at Mission bar

An unknown man smashed a bottle over a doorman’s face at a bar in the Mission district early Thursday, police said.

The 35-year-old doorman stopped one suspect at the door of a bar on Mission Street near 18th Avenue around 12:09 a.m. when another suspect struck him in the face with the bottle, police said. His face was cut but he refused to go to the hospital.

No detailed descriptions of the suspects were released by police.

Late Wednesday afternoon in an unrelated assault, a 44-year-old man was punched in the face and knocked to the ground in Hayes Valley, police said.

The man was found on Hayes Street near Buchanan Street around 4:45 p.m. by a witness who heard the man arguing with two other men, police said.

The witness saw two men in their 20s running away before finding the victim on the ground and calling 911, police said.

The wounded man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with unknown injuries. He’s expected to survive.
