Three arrested after drug deal sours in SF hotel

A drug deal in a North Beach hotel room went wrong for the supplier late Saturday when he was tied up and pistol whipped, police said.

The 24-year-old victim went to the hotel on Broadway near Columbus Avenue to supply one of the suspects with drugs around 8 p.m., police said. But when he entered the room, two men hiding in the bathroom came out, pistol whipped him and tied him up.

The suspects released the man so he could bring back another person, police said. Instead, the victim drove to a police station. Three male suspects — ages 43, 36 and 25 —were arrested in connection with the case. Their names have not been released by police.
