Man attacked with 2×4 in the Haight

A 61-year-old man was arrested by the San Francisco Police Department after he allegedly attacked a 32-year-old man with a 2×4 as he walked across a street in the Haight District, said police.

The attack took place at 3:15 p.m. Thursday near Haight Street and Masonic Avenue when the victim was walking across the street.

When the suspect approached the victim, he tried to avoid the man. When the victim told the man to stop getting in his way, he was hit in the back of the head with the piece of wood.

As he lay on the ground, the victim saw the man walk away with the 2×4 in his hand.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital and is expected to survive.

Police later arrested the alleged attacker.
