SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police have arrested a man who viciously hit a San Francisco homeless man in the skull with a metal pipe earlier this week.
KRON-TV reports police arrested 35-year-old Arthur Lee Jones of Fairfield Thursday night at the same intersection where the attack happened.
Police arrested Jones after an officer recognized him from surveillance video that was made public.
The attack occurred in front of a bar in the city's Tenderloin district on Wednesday night.
The homeless man's name and age were not released. He remains at San Francisco General Hospital in critical condition.
Officer Carlos Manfredi says the attacker hit the homeless man so hard that the pipe fell out of his hand.
