At 11:55 a.m. on Monday, a 34-year-old man was allegedly staring at a woman in a shelter on Capp Street near 17th Street, and another man, in his 50s, did not like it. The older man came up to the younger man and hit him with an unknown object, knocking the 34-year-old to the ground.
The suspect then fled the scene. The victim was taken to St. Luke’s to be treated for non-life threatening injuries, including a scalp laceration and a contusion to his forearm.
No arrests were made.
