San Francisco Police Department released surveillance footage, Thursday, of the aggravated assault which happened in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood, along Leavenworth Street, on May 24.

The footage shows the suspect before and after the assault. First coming into focus walking, wearing a dark beanie, a suit jacket and a tie. He’s also carrying a briefcase and appears to be speaking on a cell phone shortly before the attack.
Initially he pauses near the victim and then crosses the road away from the prone man. However he returns to where the man is lying on the sidewalk. Before approaching him he waits briefly behind a dumpster. He then walks straight up to the man, kicks him twice, before apparently making a brief remark and walking away.
