Man bloodied with own walking cane

A man was viciously beaten with his own walking cane Friday, police said.

The victim’s head was gushing blood when cops found him at the corner of Precita Avenue and Folsom Street, in the area of Precita Park.

One of two goons approached him around 1:20 a.m. and sprayed his jacket with a spraycan. The victim yelled at the suspect, demanding to know why he did it, police at Ingleside Station said.

The suspect then snatched the victim’s cane and struck him several times in the head. The victim fell to the ground, but the thug kept beating on him with the cane and kicking him repeatedly, police said.

The suspects fled. The victim was not listed as having life threatening injuries, police said.

A motive for the attack was not immediately known.
