Man allegedly beats up friend over laundry soap

The 59-year-old woman was with Deandre Lockhart, 27, whom she described as a friend, in a coin laundry on the 2900 block of Mission Street around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, said police spokesman Sgt. Daryl Fong.

The woman began putting her laundry into a small washer, but Lockhart told her she should use a bigger one, Fong said. She stuck with her choice, and Lockhart offered to pour laundry soap into the machine for her. When she said she’d do it herself, he punched her in the head, Fong said.

The woman fell to the ground and Lockhart punched her multiple times until she lost consciousness, police said. A witness called 911, and the woman woke up as she was being tended to by medics. She is expected to survive, police said.
