SAN FRANCISCO —
The family and co-workers of a Bay Area firefighter is asking for the public's help in trying to find the man accused of intentionally running over the firefighter.
The incident happened early Thanksgiving morning after 29-year-old Albert Bartal got in a fight with another man at a restaurant on 11th Avenue and Geary in San Francisco, police said.
After the fight, investigators said Bartal walked to a gas station two blocks away and police said that's where the suspect deliberately ran him over.
Police have released a surveillance video inside the restuarant which shows the alleged suspect. KTVU obtained this footage.
Bartal is a firefighter for Calfire and has worked there for the last five years.
He's also a former marine and Iraq War veteran.
Bartal suffered a traumatic brain injury and is currently in critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital.
Police said the suspect's car is a black Mazda CX SUV with 12 spoke rims and possible front end damage.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect or the crash is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411.
