SAN LEANDRO -- Police are looking for a man who hit a neighbor over the head with a metal pipe in San Leandro early Friday, authorities said.
Officers responding to a report of an assault at 1:46 a.m. Friday found a man with a minor head injury on the 400 block of Joaquin Avenue, according to police.
The victim told police he argued with the suspect before he was hit over the head with a 5-foot metal pipe, which officers found nearby. The argument started because the man, who is his neighbor, was apparently upset with the victim's girlfriend, police said.
The victim was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.
The suspect fled before police arrived and has not been arrested.
