Man allegedly beats deaf woman at SoMa gas station

A 43-year-old man assaulted a deaf woman at a South of Market gas station early Thursday, knocking her out and prompting his arrest.

The woman was found by police at a gas station on the 200 block of South Van Ness, just south of Market Street, around 2:40 a.m. Her chest was hurting and she had a laceration to her chin and contusion to her forehead.

When officers arrived, the woman gestured toward the man who allegedly beat her with his fist and feet, police said.

The man, whose identity has not been released, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault.

The woman, 31, is expected to survive and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment.
