Man sustains serious head injury in Tenderloin attack 

A man sustained a serious head injury in the Tenderloin on Wednesday night, police said.

Officers investigating reports of a shooting in the 600 block of Eddy Street around 10:35 p.m. discovered a 38-year-old man with a blunt force trauma head injury, police Officer Albie Esparza said. The injury was not a gunshot wound, he said.  

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said. However, as of Thursday morning he is expected to survive and was reportedly talking with investigators at the hospital.

A witness told police that he saw the victim and a suspect in a physical confrontation and the victim dropping to the ground, Esparza said.

The suspect in the attack is a black man in his 30s wearing a gray zip-up jacket and gray baseball cap, Esparza said.

Witnesses to the crime or anyone with knowledge of the suspect are encouraged to call the department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
