Man head-butts friend before stealing her vehicle

You’ll often butt heads with friends, but you’ll really know the relationship is in jeopardy when one carjacks you.

A 49-year-old woman called police just after 8 p.m. Saturday saying her pal head-butted her, pushed her out of her car and drove off with it in the Mission district.

The victim had gotten into an argument with the 43-year-old man before the brutal head-butt at 26th and Lilac streets, police said.

The victim suffered a swollen forehead, police said, but her injuries were not life threatening.

The suspect fled in the silver sedan. No arrests had been announced as of Monday.
