An Oakland man has been arrested for the brutal Pink Saturday robbery and assault of a woman on a San Francisco street, authorities said.
San Francisco police said Christopher Porter-Bailey 23, of Oakland, had been arrested in connection with the robbery and assault that was captured on video tape.
Authorities said the victim, a 28-year-old San Francisco woman, was walking on Market Street at 1:50 a.m. when she was approached by a group of suspects.
One of the suspects grabbed her purse and she was knocked to the pavement.
After she was down, investigators said, one suspect kicked her in the head so violently that she lost consciousness.
San Francisco police released a video captured by a surveillance camera that showed the attack, including the kick to the head.
With the help of Oakland Police, Porter-Bailey was arrested and returned to San Francisco. He remained in custody.
Porter-Bailey pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of second-degree robbery, assault causing great bodily injury and battery, district attorney's office spokesman Alex Bastian said.
He remains in custody on $200,000 bail and will return to court on Aug. 9, Bastian said.
Investigators said they were also trying to determine if Porter-Bailey and his companions were the same ones who committed other robberies and assaults that occurred on June 30 on Market Street between Civic Center and Castro Street around the same time period.
Persons who believe that they were victims or potential victims of the same suspects but did not report the incident are urged to contact the Mission Station Investigation Team at 415-558-5400.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
