Fight victims, suspects hold unhappy reunion at hospital

Police did not have to search very hard for these suspects.

After a vicious bar brawl in the Mission district early Wednesday, both the suspects and victims were treated at San Francisco General Hospital, police said. Not long after the victims were admitted, police said, two men believed to be responsible for the attack arrived at the same hospital via a taxicab seeking treatment for their own injuries.

The incident unfolded shortly before 2 a.m. when officers responded to a fight near South Van Ness Avenue and 22nd Street and found two victims, 27 and 31, suffering from slash wounds to their faces, police said. The victims, both San Francisco residents, reportedly told cops they had been assaulted by four men with glass bottles outside a bar.

The suspects, identified as 23-year-olds Enzo Cestoni and Jorge Lopez, were positively identified by the victims and arrested. They were later booked into County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon,
police said.
