SFPD seeks person of interest in Market Street homicide

A person of interest in the mid-afternoon killing of a 74-year-old man last month was captured on surveillance footage released by police on Monday.

The man is wanted by police in connection with the homicide of Stuart Jackson, a San Francisco resident who was attacked at Van Ness and Market streets on Dec. 5. He died seven days later from injuries related to the assault, authorities said.

The person of interest is described as between 25 and 35 years old and about 6 feet tall with a muscular build, police said, noting that the man was clean.

Hoodline reported that Jackson was a popular North Beach sketch artist who drew portraits of patrons at Caffe Trieste.

Jackson was standing at a bus stop around 2 p.m. when the suspect attacked him without apparent reason, causing him to fall and strike his head on the cement, police said.

Jackson was taken to the hospital where he later died.
