Police handing out fliers at Montgomery BART station seeking suspects in homeless man’s death

San Francisco police and members of its Auxiliary Law Enforcement Response Team will be handing out fliers Thursday at the Montgomery Street BART station in an attempt to find the people of interest in the brutal beating death of 67-year-old Tai Lam.

Lam was sleeping in an alley off Sutter Street about a block away from the BART station Nov. 23 when he was beaten to death by three men.

On Tuesday, investigators released two surveillance videos of the suspects. In one, three men can be seen milling around the steps of Crocker Galleria, where one of the men was smoking a cigarette. The second video shows Lam sleeping in his sleeping bag in the alley when one of the men runs into the alley and kicks him several times. He is seen leaving and returning to kick Lam again.

Police believe the trio used the Montgomery Street BART station before or after the attack.

Police will be at that station from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday handing out fliers in the hopes someone will recognize the suspects and come forward to police with information that leads to arrests.

Anyone with information on the suspects is encouraged to call police anonymously at (415) 575-4444 or send a text to TIP411.
