(BANT) – San Francisco Police say one person is under arrest after a group of young people attacked a 30-year-old father who asked them to be careful around his young son at a park  Thursday evening.

Officials say the man was at the park at Felton and Holyoke streets in the Bayview District with his son around 7:16 p.m. when a group of about 20 young people started having a water fight close to where his son was playing.

When the father went to talk to them, police say about eight of the young people began punching and kicking him, knocking him to the ground. The man was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police arrested one of the young people on suspicion of aggravated assault.
