A man was critically injured in an attack over a beer in the Tenderloin on Saturday, police Officer Albie Esparza said Monday.
The 51-year-old victim was struck in the head by another man at Jones and McAllister streets about 10:50 p.m. The attacker reportedly asked if he could have some of the victim's beer and the victim said no, Esparza said.
After being struck, the victim fell down and hit his head against the sidewalk.
The suspect fled in an unknown direction and no arrest has been made. There was very little suspect description available.
The victim was taken to the hospital where as of Monday afternoon he remains in critical condition.
