A couple and their roommate sustained non-life-threatening injuries during an assault by three suspects on Valencia Street on Saturday morning.

A reader sent us an email describing the incident:

My husband, my roommate, and I were walking home from a night out down Valencia St. [near 19th Street] when we were attacked by three guys on Friday night around 1 AM. My husband just wanted to take me out for our first night out since we had our son … we never expected something like that to happen. On our walk home 3 guys approached us and one of them grabbed me and started saying a bunch of really lewd things. My husband told him to back off and the three started to attack him. My roommate and I pulled two of them off of him and I was punched in the temple and knocked to the ground in the process. The two we pulled off then attacked my roommate, hitting him with a skateboard and kicking him in the face. My husband was still tangled up with the initial attacker and eventually ended up chasing him. The police responded quickly (we were about a block or two from the station after all) and the three attackers were arrested. My roommate and I had to go to the ER for stitches and my husband had to get an x-ray for an elbow injury. As I said we are hoping to get the word out and get into contact with anyone who may have witnessed the attack (there were a ton of bystanders) and I really hope you guys can help us with that. 

If you have any information, contact SFPD.

We will update this story as we get more information.

    why do you need witnesses? they were already arrested.

      Being arrested is a whole different thing from actually being prosecuted. Witnesses can be crucial in convincing the DA to decide to prosecute.

        Can the 3 victims act as each others witnesses?
        Sorry, I am not good with law.
