Four suspects wanted for a brutal SoMa bar beating were arrested Thursday after the San Francisco Police Department Gang Task Force Unit served six search warrants.
The four men — three from San Francisco and one from Daly City — were wanted in connection with an attack in the South of Market neighborhood in August 2011, according to San Francisco police.
The beating case started when three victims went to a bar on the 400 block of Third Street, which is between Harrison and Bryant streets. After a confrontation at the bar, the victims tried to leave but were stopped and beaten by the suspects, according to police.
The three beating victims were taken to the hospital by a friend and treated for serious injuries. One of the victims required a weeklong hospitalization, police said.
The case was investigated by the SFPD Gang Task Force Unit and the arrest warrants were issued for 29-year-old Raymond Luu of Daly City, 28-year-old Melvin Hua, 29-year-old Tony Tang and 45-year-old Michael Ta, all of San Francisco, according to police. Each of the warrants for the suspects was set at $2 million.
San Francisco police on Thursday executed six search warrants and took the four suspects into custody on charges that include mayhem, false imprisonment and conspiracy, according to police.
