The San Francisco Police Department is calling on the public to help identify a suspect who allegedly attacked and choked a woman in Visitacion Valley earlier this month.

The department shared images on Friday of the man, who is described as between 25 and 29 years old, approximately 5 feet, 11 inches tall, 150 pounds, having black hair and last seen wearing a black jacket and black pants.

The woman told police that she was walking alone on Sunnydale Avenue near Bayshore Boulevard on the afternoon of May 7 when she saw a man acting erratically and “yelling incoherent statements” up ahead of her, a news release from police said. She crossed the street to avoid him, and the suspect followed her, the release said.

The police report said the man allegedly grabbed the woman and “then put his hand on the victim’s neck and squeezed her throat, which prevented her from breathing.” The man continued to attack the woman, “pushing her to the ground and yelling incoherent statements,” the police report said. The suspect also continued to strangle the woman while he was on top of her, and she temporarily lost consciousness, police said.

The woman told police that the man fled when a witness called out. 

Police responded to the scene after 3 p.m. but were unable to locate the man. Medics arrived on the scene and treated the woman’s injuries. 

Anyone with information can contact SF police at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
