Police have arrested two suspects in a brutal assault that occurred in the Tenderloin last week.

Jarbari Nelson, 23, and Pausanias Wise, 24, both of Richmond, were booked on attempted murder, and assault and battery charges for an incident that took place in the 400 block of O'Farrell Street on Thursday about 6:05 p.m.

In that incident, Nelson and Wise are alleged to have knocked out a 32-year-old man and while the victim was on the ground unconscious, the two suspects reportedly stomped on his head several times, police said.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he remains. His injuries are not life threatening.

A state parole agent detained one of the suspects shortly after the attack, police said. After a review of surveillance video, police were able to identify the second suspect and he was arrested later that evening.

Nelson was also charged with a probation violation and Wise with a parole violation. Both suspects remain in custody.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and that they will be withholding booking pictures and surveillance video at this time.
