SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A woman was beaten with brass knuckles by two men in San Francisco’s Portola neighborhood early Tuesday morning, police said.

The attack was reported around 2:10 a.m. near San Bruno Avenue and Silliman Street.

The 25-year-old victim was walking with her husband when a group of suspects drove by in a car and yelled obscenities at her, according to police.

Two of the suspects then got out of the vehicle, a black four-door sedan, and struck the victim with the brass knuckles, police said.

The suspects, described as men between 25 and 30 years old, got back in the car and fled. They had not been found as of Tuesday morning, according to police.

The victim was taken to a hospital to be treated for abrasions to her forehead and leg, but was expected to survive.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
