File photo.

A man who saw two youth vandalizing a building near 20th and Mission streets on Tuesday night was hit with a skateboard after he tried to stop them. The 36-year-old victim approached the two men, both aged 23, near 9:40 p.m. and confronted them about the vandalism. One of the suspects then hit him with a skateboard before both fled on foot.

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and then police have not made an arrest.

Also on Tuesday, shots were fired on Natoma Street between 14th and 15th streets at 7:21 p.m. A 26-year-old man was in an argument  with two men and a woman of unknown ages when the woman fired a handgun down the street, hitting the victim’s car. All three suspects then fled on foot. The police have not made an arrest.

    1. This is a file photo illustration (not related specifically to the crimes outlined here). I will update the caption.

  1. What does the graffiti look like? is it the “art” of one of the regulars?

    I for one, would like to know if it is something we would recognize. because hitting someone one with a skateboard is a hole different level than “vandalizing” a building.
