Around 9:30 p.m. the victim from San Mateo was walking east on Fifth Avenue underneath the Fifth and Williams avenues overpass when he saw two men standing at the guardrail, sheriff's officials said.
As he walked past them they began to attack him while tearing two gold necklaces off his neck. The two men then hit the victim over the head with a beer bottle, which knocked him to the ground, according to the sheriff's office.

The second suspect is in his early 20s and was wearing a black baseball cap, two earrings and a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
