Police searching for suspect in head-stomping attack

San Francisco police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who assaulted a man in the Tenderloin on Tuesday and then stomped on his head as he lay on the sidewalk.

The suspect walked away north on Mason Street after the alleged attack, which occurred at 1 p.m. on Mason Street between Turk and Eddy streets.

The 38-year-old victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries and refused medical treatment, police spokesperson Adam Lobsinger said.

Police have released two images of the suspect captured by a surveillance camera and are asking people with information to call the 24-hour tip line at (415) 575-4444, or text to TIP411 and place “SFPD” at the start of the message. Callers may remain anonymous, police said.
