A Bayview man was smashed over the head with a frying pan during a spat with his roommate over potatoes on Thanksgiving, according to San Francisco police.

San Francisco police called to the 700 block of Dartmouth Street at 3:22 a.m. found the victim with a laceration to his head. The victim declined medical attention, police said.

The victim said his roomie struck him so hard over the head with the frying pan that the handle broke off. He told cops that he went into the kitchen and noticed potatoes burning in a frying pan. He yelled out to his roommates, asking who was cooking.

The suspect came in the kitchen, became angry and struck the victim in the lip. He then grabbed the frying pan and hit him on the back of the head, police said.

The suspect left the house before cops arrived. Police were called back to the house at 4:17 a.m. The suspect, who had returned, was arrested and booked at Bayview Station.
