A former San Francisco fire commissioner was brutally attacked when a metal wreath was crushed just outside his mother’s door in the footsteps of neighbors who say “no one is safe” in the crime-ridden city.
Disturbing cell phone footage shows a man wandering the neighborhood with a metal wreath in hand — though police are still confirming he is the attacker.
Don Carmignani, 53, was left fighting for his life in hospital after the horrific beating on Wednesday which comes one day after App founder Bob Lee was stabbed to death one day.
Close friends of the victim allege he was targeted by a ‘group of homeless people’ as he was leaving his mother’s home in the city’s Marina District.
Carmignani – who served as a fire marshal in 2013 – was reportedly stabbed with a knife and had a broken pipe.

Police have yet to confirm whether the man in the video is linked to the Carmignani attack
San Francisco police arrested four-year-old Gareth Doty who faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon and battery causing serious injury.
A male witness – who asked to remain anonymous – uploaded the video to the Citizens App after the attack.
He CBS news: ‘He struck them inhumanly’. I cried, stop, stop, stop! I am upstairs.
But people were saying, but I think people are afraid because they don’t know what they have in them.
Attorney Joe Alioto-Veronesus – who is a friend of Carmignani – wrote on Twitter Thursday: ‘Last night at 7 pm in the area of the sea at Laguna and in the street of chestnut, my friend and former San Francisco Commissioner was brutally killed by a group of homeless people. of his house.
He fought for his life with the SF leader. Pray for Him.’
Carmignani underwent surgery on Thursday and remained in the ICU as of Friday afternoon, Alioto-Veronesi later confirmed.
The pulse was similar to the attack against Paul Pelosi – the husband of former House Speaker Nancy – at his San Francisco mansion.
Pelosi was beaten to death by madman David DePape on October 28 in her Pacific Castles home, which is about a mile from Carmignano.
Carmignani, who was a fire marshal in 2013, was reportedly stabbed with a knife and had his skull fractured by a pipe.

Lee, 43, was targeted in San Francisco’s downtown Rincon Hill neighborhood at 2.35am on April 4.
He said the New York Post: ‘It is dangerous here and this can happen to a big guy like Don Carmignani, which tells us that it can happen in some neighborhood in San Francisco.’
“The fact that Paul Pelosi could be attacked in a similar way in front of his own officials inside his own home shows you that no one is safe in this city.”
San Francisco has seen a violent uptick in crime, with police statistics showing that the number of homicides in the city rose by 36.6 percent — from 41 to 56 — between 2019 and 2022.
Violent crimes are also up 7.5 percent over the past three years across San Francisco.
Property crime has risen 20.7 percent over the past three years.
Catherine Stefani, who represents the Marina District, says the state constitution needs to provide for the needs of law enforcement to turn the tide on crime in this city.
He added: Praying for Don, his family and his health, I want to be clear: we cannot tolerate this criminal activity.
Not in Marina, not anywhere. Everyone has the power to protect their own city in San Francisco, and that means stopping city politics with public safety.

This week San Francisco was moved by the brutal killing of Cash App founder Bob Lee.
Lee, 43, was targeted in San Francisco’s downtown Rincon Hill residential neighborhood at 2.35am on April 4.
CCTV footage obtained by Dailymail.com shows a mystery bystander walking the streets where the tech mogul was killed.
The entrepreneur founded the multibillion dollar tech company Cash App, a mobile payment service, and then became the chief technology officer at the payment company Block. After his death, he became a leader at MobileCoin, a crypto payment firm.
Lee’s colleagues, who created CashApp, have criticized state leaders for losing control amid rising violence – claiming they have blood on their hands.
Matt Ocko, the founder of the DCVC, criticized the former District Attorney of San Francisco for the tragedy, because the new DA Brooke Jenkins gave him “sincere condolences” and added that she does not tolerate horrific crimes.
