Tenderloin robbery leaves man with life-threatening head injury

A man suffered a life-threatening head injury Thursday morning during a robbery on the edge of the Tenderloin, police said.

The 55-year-old man was punched in the face during an argument at the intersection of Cyril Magnin and Eddy streets, a block from Market Street and several blocks away from Union Square.

The man fell down and hit his head on the ground, which knocked him unconscious, police said. The suspect then riffled through his pockets and stole unknown items.

The wounded man was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The suspect has not been arrested but is described as a 25-year-old man. He fled the scene before police arrived.
