    Investigators are asking for the public's help identifying an armed man wanted in connection with a possible home invasion robbery in San Francisco, police said.

    The incident occurred on the 1300 block of La Playa Street around 8:40 a.m. Monday.

    In a security video posted to YouTube by police, the armed suspect can be seen attacking a man in a garage.

    The victim fights back and, after a struggle, he's able to wrestle a handgun away from the suspect, move outside of the garage and point the weapon at his attacker, who then flees the scene off-camera.

    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.
