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.
