S.F. Residents Beware: Razor Scooter Thug Is Roaming Streets


In San Francisco, you never know which Razor scooter-riding thug you’ll run into next.

Police are searching for a man they describe as 40 to 50 years old, likely with a blood-covered little Razor under one of his arms. (We added that last part.) On Monday afternoon, some guy allegedly mowed down a 54-year-old man who was walking on a sidewalk near Van Ness Avenue and Hayes Street. Instead of helping the guy get up, this super-predator proceeded to beat him senseless before quietly riding away.

The suspect can’t have gotten very far on those two wheels alone, so maybe he is among the tens of thousands of 40- to 50-year-old men roaming the streets of San Francisco right now. If you see one, don’t make any strange gestures, don’t stare, don’t point, and certainly don’t ask him if he has a Razor scooter.

The victim remained hospitalized as of Monday night, but was in stable condition.

We’re hoping the suspect is brought to justice - not only for this senseless and brutal attack, but also for being middle-aged and riding a Razor scooter in a populated area.
