Man critically injured in Union Square assault, possible robbery

A man was critically injured in an assault and possible robbery in Union Square on Friday, police said Monday. It was the second time a man was brutally beaten in the area in the past two months.

A passer-by called police about 11:45 p.m. and said he witnessed three men attacking the man near Stockton and Bush streets. When police arrived, they found the victim on the ground unconscious and bleeding from the ears. He was hospitalized in critical condition.

The previous incident happened in September when a 43-year-old Fremont man was assaulted in the Union Square area. Manuel Gallegos later died from his injuries, and there have been no arrests in the case.
