Man charged with running down girlfriend on North Beach strip

Several people passing through the bar- and club-lined Broadway corridor Sunday night witnessed a scary scene as a man ran down his girlfriend in the street, according to police.

The woman jumped out of the man’s double-parked pickup truck near the intersection of Kearny Street and Broadway about 8 p.m., according to police spokesman Sgt. Steve Mannina. The man sped off and turned a corner, only to return again to run down the woman as she crossed the street.

The woman was seriouslyhurt but her wounds weren’t life-threatening. Police then tracked down the suspect, 41-year-old Jianhong Wu, at a residence, Mannina said. Police booked the man on suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated assault and felony hit and run.
