Police booked Albany resident, 39-year-old David Mark Clark  late Friday night on four counts of attempted murder,  four counts of aggravated assault and four counts of hit and run in connection with the four hit and run incidents of June 2.

They arrested Clark on Friday at around 1 p.m., when he went to the Albany police station to report that his car had being carjacked –the same one involved in the attacks.

Clark allegedly went on a rampage and hit four cyclists: two in the Mission on the 2700 and 2800 block of Harrison, and two in Potrero Hill (23rd and Pennsylvania and 17th and Missouri.)

The victims were all men ranging in age from their mid-twenties to forty. The attacker does not appear to have discriminated with regard to ethnicity: two of the victims were described as white, one as Asian, and one as Hispanic.

Two of the victims had scratches, bruises and a broken leg.  The third struck his head when he fell and was in and out of consciousness. They were taken to San Francisco General Hospital. The fourth refused medical treatment.

Scott Sewell, a Mission resident who lives nearby and saw one of the hit and runs occur, said last night that the driver drove directly at the cyclist. The car proceeded as if it were “on a rope. Straight for that guy. Didn’t touch the brakes. Nothing.”

Clark was driving a Nissan Rogue, according to an article published by SFGate. Sewell described it as a two-door blue coupe. “It had something like a 50 gallon drum on the back,“ he said.

SFPD recovered  a car near Potrero Hill but without the driver.
