SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities have charged a man with attempted murder in connection to the brutal beating of a homeless man that was caught on an outdoor surveillance camera.

San Francisco police say they arrested 35-year-old Arthur Lee Jones of Fairfield, California on Thursday. He was charged Monday.

The surveillance video shows the victim sitting outside a bar in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district on Wednesday when a man walks by and suddenly takes a hard swing at the homeless man’s head with a metal rod.

Officer Carlos Manfredi says the victim received about 50 stitches to his head and lost a “significant amount of blood” at the scene. Police have not released his name or age.

His condition was not immediately available Monday.

Police say Jones was arrested on the same corner where the brutal attack took place.
