Police report a 19-year-old woman was beaten after rejecting a man’s advances early Thursday morning. Around 1 a.m., the woman and a 22-year-old man were being driven around by a friend while they drank and smoked marijuana. The man indicated he wanted a relationship with the woman, to which she said no. The man then hit the woman on the nose with a bottle and punched her three times in the face. The driver dropped them off on Utah Street between 24th and 25th streets, where the man then threatened to kill the victim and wouldn’t leave. Officers arrived and arrested the man, and the woman was treated for her facial injuries at the hospital.
A 48-year-old man told police he had passed out while drunk at 24th and Valencia streets sometime between 4 and 6 a.m. on Wednesday. He woke up to cuts on his arm and leg, apparently from a knife. The man got to the hospital on his own and did not provide any further information to police.
Just after 11 p.m. on Wednesday, a 37-year-old man went into a store on Valencia and McCoppin streets to buy cigarettes. As he left the store, he saw a man in his late 50s getting out of the victim’s car with his cell phone. When the victim asked for his phone back, the older man pulled a knife on him. The victim was not injured, and no arrest was made.
