San Francisco Police need your help finding two wanted suspects who police say dragged a man into the street and beat him until he lost consciousness.

The incident happened on Sept. 17 about 6 p.m., when four men were chasing the victim on the 800 block of Clay Street. The victim tried to hide in a nearby business but the group of men found him.

The guys carried the victim out to the street where they severely beat him until he was knocked out, said Officer Albie Esparza.

The men stole the victim's stuff and ran off. A few minutes passed before the victim awoke and attempted to walk to a business, hoping to call 911.

Unfortunately, the suspects were still around. They attacked the man again, and stole his phone -- and his car; the suspects jumped into the victim's vehicle and drove off, according to police.

SFPD gang task officers arrested two suspects; however, two more are on the lam. The two outstanding suspects have been identified as: Solomon Soohoo, 31, and  20-year-old Curtis Leong. Both men have warrants for their arrest and are wanted for kidnapping, burglary, robbery, and assault, according to police.

The two suspects could be in San Francisco or in the East Bay. If you see these guys or know anything about where they are, please dial 911 now. You may also contact the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 with SFPD in the field.
