SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A man was knocked unconscious when he was beaten by a group of people in San Francisco’s Mission District late Wednesday night, police said.

The attack was reported at 11:34 p.m. in the 2000 block of Mission Street near the 16th Street Mission BART station, according to police.

Four male suspects and one female approached the 46-year-old victim and began to punch and kick him, police said.

The victim fell to the ground and blacked out. When officers arrived, he was still lying unconscious on the sidewalk, according to police.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

The suspects fled and have not yet been found.

    ya so who decided that an unarmed populace would be better anyway. if there was jus one armed person this kind of thing could be dealt with, o yeah call the police right? well tell that to this unconscious citizen. there is an alternative to mayhem and robbery – its called the second amendment. and to those who would call me a gun nut – what if it was your son or daughter laying beaten and robbed and left to die on the ground? what would you prefer for them? a fighting chance, thats what i thought 🙂

    WOW! Great journalism once again guys, with such a detailed description of the attackers, it’s just a matter of hours before they’re captured.

    Let’s take a guess though, that the victim was white, and the attackers were black……can’t have anyone thinking the victim was attacked for any reason other than whites are easier targets than blacks.

    A war is coming guys, it’s unfortunate, but it’s inevitable! Whites will NOT be systematically targeted and victimized at the hands of those we fought to set free and have offered more opportunities to than any other race in this Country, for much longer.

    It may be 20 years from now (although I doubt it) but it will happen, be ready.

      Payback for what? He was at a Bart Station probably going home to see his family. That payback excuse is such BS, it makes me sick. Its wrong what happened to him and there is no excuse for it.

      Try your payback in Texas and see who goes to the hospital

    This is happening all over the northeast, north, and Kalliforneeyuh. Blacks and Hispanics are always the perpetrators.

    In the Mission there is a very good the attackers weren’t black. Why be so racist?

    Forgot the word chance after good.

    Why are you humans are so quick to judge when you have so little of the actual facts of the matter?!

  7. Charles Rasmuson says:

    Facts are he was unable to defend himself against a group of attackers because he is in San Francisco, CA. California USED to be a great state.
