A man was critically injured in a fight that broke out in front of a corner store in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood late Wednesday night after a burglary, a police spokesman said today.
A group of people tried to enter the building in the 2200 block of 23rd Street around 11:25 p.m. when a 23-year-old man confronted the suspects, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
One of the suspects used a glass bottle to attack the victim, whose ear was possibly severed, according to police.
He was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.
Another victim was cut on his nose and face, Esparza said. He was treated at the scene.
Two of the three suspects — men ages 33, 34 and 73 — were arrested, Esparza said. Their names were not immediately available, he said.
An employee at the Kansas Food Market, located at 2250 23rd St., said the store was open this morning.
