A man was assaulted and robbed of his laundry in the Mission district on Monday after a dispute over a parking space, police said.

The 29-year-old victim had reportedly talked to the suspect on a previous occasion about not parking in an assigned spot in the 1400 block of Treat Avenue, police Officer Gordon Shyy said. When the suspect parked there Monday, the victim called to have the car towed. About 3 p.m. that day, the suspect, angry that his car was towed, confronted the victim in the 3100 block of Cesar Chavez Street, and an argument ensued.

The argument turned physical when the suspect punched the victim in the head and upper body multiple times before pushing him to the ground, Shyy said. The victim dropped a bag of clothes that he intended to have cleaned. The suspect grabbed the bag.

The victim then fled the area. The suspect followed for a short time before fleeing on foot with the victim's laundry, Shyy said.

The suspect was described as a man in his 20s or 30s wearing a black and green baseball cap, a green shirt with a black tank top over it, black and green camouflaged pants, and black and green shoes, Shyy said.

Investigators will be following up on the case, finding out the registered owner of the towed vehicle and if that vehicle is indeed owned by the suspect, Shyy said.

The victim's injuries were considered minor. No arrest has been made.
