The man critically injured in what was originally believed to be a hit-and-run in the Mission district early Monday morning is now expected to survive and there was an arrest in the case, Officer Albie Esparza said.
Jose Luis Garcia, 24, of San Francisco was arrested at his home and booked on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, attempted murder and driving without a license, Esparza said.
The 27-year-old victim was reportedly intentionally struck by the suspect as the victim was removing his bike from a bike rack in the 2100 block of Mission Street about 4:55 a.m.
Police originally believed the incident was a hit-and-run, but an investigation revealed that the victim and suspect know each other and the assault was intentional, Esparza said.
The victim was hospitalized with critical injuries, but is expected to survive, Esparza said.Assault with a deadly weaponAttempted murderBay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsSan Francisco Police Department
