An 8-year-old boy was injured in South San Francisco Sunday night when the car he was riding in was attacked by a man with a baseball bat.

Officers were called to the 100 block of West Orange Avenue at about 10 p.m. on a report of an assault with a deadly weapon.

A man told police he was driving with his wife and son when he saw two men a woman arguing on the sidewalk. One of the men hit the woman and then approached the victims' vehicle with a baseball bat, police said.

The suspect struck a rear window with the bat and shattered it. The victim's son, who was sitting in the back seat, suffered a minor cut.

The attacker had fled by the time police arrived. He is described as a clean-shaven Hispanic man about 25 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall with a medium build and short, dark hair. He was wearing a red T-shirt and red shorts.
