SAN FRANCISCO - A 25-year-old man who was spotted by officers angrily hitting a parked car with a orange traffic cone in San Francisco's Bayview District had been stabbed earlier with a broken bottle in a fight with the car's owner Friday afternoon, police said.
Around 1:40 p.m., police noticed the man in the 1500 block of Oakdale Avenue hitting a parked car -- apparently in a fit of rage -- with the cone, police said.
An officer approached the suspect and saw that the victim was bleeding from several cuts on his shoulder, police said.
The man told the officer that he had been attacked with a broken bottle by the owner of the car. He said that he had been cut while inside the suspect's home in that same block, police said.
The officer called for medical assistance and the man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with minor injuries, police said.
Officers went to the suspect's home and found the suspect hiding inside a shed in the backyard, police said.
The suspect allegedly put up a fight when officers tried to arrest him, but eventually he was taken into custody, police said.
Officers searched the suspect's home and found a loaded 9mm handgun that was reported stolen, police said.
San Francisco police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said a suspect was arrested in the case, but a district attorney's spokesman said that person will not be charged because there is insufficient evidence.
