It was a fuel-fledged attack.
A man was assaulted with a can of kerosene on the Muni T-Third line in the Bayview on Friday, police said Monday.
The victim got on the train near Third Street and Kirkwood Avenue about 4:30 p.m. when the suspect in the assault stuck out his foot and tripped the victim.
The suspect then grabbed a kerosene can and hit the victim on the back of his head with the can several times, police said. The kerosene-can-carrying creep then fled the vehicle and no arrest has been made.
He was described by police as a man in his 50s.
The victim was taken to the hospital for his injuries, which were not life threatening.
