Violent Guy With Knife on the Loose
According to police, on Aug. 4 at about 1 a.m., the victim was on the corner of Union and Buchanan streets when the suspect assaulted the man, slicing him several times and leaving him with nerve damage to his hands.
The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he had surgery; he was later released from the hospital and is reportedly recovering at home.
However, the suspect, who fled the scene, remains at large. He is described as a white or Hispanic male, between the ages of 20 and 30. He is approximately 6-foot tall and weighs about170 pounds. The suspect has closely shaved hair and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.
The cops were able to pull still images of the suspect from a surveillance camera near the incident. So have a close gander.
If anyone has information on the identification of the suspect, call Sergeant Donati at 614-3400 or leave an anonymous tip at 575-4444. Citizens may also text a tip at TIP411 and type SFPD in the subject line.
