Man With Obama Sign Attacked In San Francisco
Yes you read it right.....in San Francisco no less.
SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) – A man who set up a table with political literature and a sign supporting President Barack Obama was attacked in San Francisco’s North Panhandle neighborhood on Monday morning, a police captain said Tuesday.
The attack happened around 11:30 a.m. Monday in the 1200 block of Fell Street, where the victim, a 29-year-old Daly City man, had set up his table, said Capt. Denis O’Leary of the Police Department’s Park Station.
A man and woman approached the victim, tore one of the signs and shook the table, causing the political literature to fall to the ground.
The suspects also kicked the man in the hand, O’Leary said.
The man and woman, who had dogs with them, fled south on Broderick Street before officers arrived, and haven’t been located, O’Leary said.
The victim said the pair made “no mention of a political affiliation,” O’Leary said. “It’s just unusual that they took offense to him and his sign.”
