Local Brit Tosses Cigarette at 'Prissy' Woman

Never let that refined British accent fool you.

On Tuesday, a well-dressed Englishman strolling through Golden Gate Park verbally abused a woman -- and then assaulted her -- as she was pushing her baby in a stroller.

Police said the chap was walking near Sixth Avenue and Lincoln Way at about 4:15 p.m. when he saw the 22-year-old mother pushing her son in a stroller along a path in Golden Gate Park.

The man yelled, "Prissy people like you with your nice carriages and pretty

little dogs as fashion accessories shouldn't be allowed to walk the streets."

That's not very proper of him.

Naturally, the woman chose to ignore the rude man and kept walking. But he wasn't through. The man caught up to mom and toddler and tossed his lit cigarette at her, according to police reports.

The aggrieved Brit carried on his way -- no doubt whistling "Anarchy in the UK."
