SAN FRANCISCO — Two women were brutally beaten in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Friday, July 17 after their home was broken into by three armed women, police said.
At around 8:30 p.m., a suspect identified as Deanna Johnson, 55, and two other women, ages 25 and 30, kicked down the door of a residence on the 1700 block of Quesada Avenue. The 25-year-old suspect struck one of the residents, 34, several times on the head and arms with a retractable metal baton, police said.
Johnson and the 30-year-old suspect began to attack the other female resident, 26, when she tried to intercede.

One of the victims was left with a broken arm and head trauma, and the other victim suffered pain to the head and arms. They were treated at San Francisco General Hospital.
