SAN DIEGO – The body of a man who was viciously attacked was found in Ocean Beach Monday morning.
An early-morning park-goer flagged down an officer near Robb Field on West Point Loma Boulevard around 6 a.m. The officer then found the man, believed to be in his 50s or 60s, not breathing and with “a lot of trauma” to his upper body.
It appeared that the man may have been homeless, and was sleeping when he was attacked, police said. It is not known whether the victim frequents the area.

Homicide detectives were at the scene conducting interviews.
Police released surveillance photos Monday afternoon of a man they described as a person of interest in this case and two additional attacks against homeless men in the area.
“This person is only a person of interest at this time,” said Captain Nisleit. “Based on our evidence and based on the investigation as we are working through all three of these cases, we do believe all three of these cases are linked and one person is responsible for these two homicides and attack.”
