Man struck in the head with a bat in the Tenderloin

A 25-year-old man was assaulted with a bat in San Francisco’s Tenderloin on Sunday evening, police said.

The attack was reported at around 10:33 p.m. near the corner of Ellis and Hyde streets, according to police. The suspect struck the victim in the head and fled the scene.

The victim was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police said the suspect was arrested on charges of aggravated assault Sunday. Police described the suspect as a 29-year-old man, but did not provide further details.
