(06-26) 15:29 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- A man beaten last October in a Bernal Heights park for drinking someone else's alcohol has died, and San Francisco police are seeking help in solving the slaying.
Pierre Oliver, 43, who was attacked at 12:55 a.m. Oct. 5, died of his injuries June 8, police Lt. Mike Stasko said Friday.
Oliver was assaulted in Holly Park after he supposedly drank out of someone else's bottle, police said.
He was walking away from the dispute when a group of people, including at least one woman, beat and kicked him unconscious, Stasko said. Investigators have no detailed descriptions of the attackers.
Oliver was in a convalescent hospital in San Mateo County when he died.
The case was designated a homicide last week, Stasko said.
