Police are asking the public to help track down two men responsible for brutally beating and robbing a San Francisco man as he walked through the Tenderloin nearly two months ago.

On Oct. 11, at about 5 p.m., the 31-year-old victim was walking at Ellis and Jones streets when the suspects approached him and started beating him. They took his cellphone and his money, and left him bleeding in the street.

An hour later, the victim's friend found him on the street. He was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Although he has since recovered, police are issuing an alert to the public to help find the two suspects.

"We don't have much more [information] than what we sent out," said Officer Albie Esparza. Investigators are "hoping witnesses will come forwards or leads."

The suspects are described as two black males in their late teens to early 20s. Police had no more information about the suspects, which is why they need your help.

 Anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco Police Anonymous Tip Line at 575-4444 or use Text-A-Tip to "TIP411."

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
