A man was knocked out over some smokes in the Tenderloin on Tuesday, police said.
The 54-year-old victim was leaving St. Anthony's about 2 p.m. when he was approached by a man at Golden Gate Avenue and Leavenworth Street who wanted cigarettes or money, police said. The victim said no and the suspect punched the victim several times, knocking him unconscious.
The victim went home and sought his own medical attention before calling police.
His injuries were not life threatening.
There was little description information on the suspect Wednesday morning. No arrest has been made.
