Police are searching for two suspects who allegedly ran down a man at the Legion of Honor Tuesday who tried to take pictures of them in connection with an auto burglary

The scene unfolded around 4 p.m., police said, when the man started taking pictures of two suspects who he thought had broken into his vehicle in the museum’s parking lot.

The suspects allegedly ran into him with their vehicle and then sped away in an silver four-door BMW. The victim suffered life-threatening injuries, but was listed as stable in the hospital as of Wednesday afternoon.

Police are asking the public for help in locating the suspects and have released a photo of the vehicle. Anyone with information is asked to call immediately.

Department officials on Wednesday said they are working with the Legion of Honor to create a public awareness campaign about auto burglaries.
