    San Francisco police are still searching for a man who broke into an apartment near Ocean Beach and holding the victim at gunpoint.

    Surveillance video of the Sept. 28 incident shows the victim, Bill Oxidean, wrestling the gun away.

    "He ran in behind me, gun drawn and went 'Rahh!' like a monster!" Oxidean said on Monday.

    Surveillance video of the attack shows Oxidean jumping, trying to defend himself as the suspect in a grey hoodie holds him at gunpoint in his garage last week. The suspect snuck in as Oxidean was moving his garbage cans.

    "What's going through my mind at that point is hurting him," Oxidean said. "I don't like monsters. I attack monsters."

    Oxidean was able to wrest the gun away from the suspect.

    "He was trying his hardest to pull the gun away and that's what started the 'dance.'" Oxidean said.

    San Francisco Police Department spokesman Albie Esperanza said police are still searching for the suspect.

    "We want to get this person off the streets so this doesn't happen again," Esperanza said. "The next time we might not be so lucky."

    Still standing and uninjured, Oxidean has the following message for the suspect: "If he wants to come back we can dance again."

    No suspect description was immediately available, but police said he had dread locks.

    Anyone with additional information is asked to call the San Francisco Police Department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444.
