A man was attacked with a flashlight, brick, hammer and garden hoe Monday following an argument with his nephew, according to Bayview Station police.
Police were notified about 6:30 p.m. Monday that a 57-year-old assault victim had arrived at San Francisco General Hospital with serious injuries.
After an argument, the victim told police, his live-in adult nephew struck him in the head with a flashlight and brick, hurled a hammer at him, and finally smacked him with a garden hoe. The victim, who had tried to get away from his nephew at least once during the attack, eventually ran into his bedroom and waited for the suspect to leave before taking the bus to the hospital.
Officers found the nephew Tuesday and arrested him on numerous assault charges. His identity was not immediately available.
