DOWNTOWN — A 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection with unprovoked random attacks on pedestrians walking near San Diego City Hall over recent months, police said.
The arrest came after witnesses saw a man board a bus following an attack of a Navy enlisted man who was pushed to the ground from behind and repeatedly kicked about the head about 3:15 p.m., Hastings said.
The victim remains hospitalized and has undergone reconstructive surgery.
There have been five other attacks since April 5 in the same area of Third Avenue and C Street. Two other victims also were hospitalized.
All victims have been white males. The suspect is black.
“We are investigating this as a hate crime,” Hastings said.
