SAN FRANCISCO — A San Francisco firefighter has been charged with a felony, accused of attacking a fellow firefighter in February.

NBC Bay Area reported Wednesday that, according to investigators, Firefighter Robert Mohammed, 47, went to another firefighter’s home in Oakland, where a confrontation ensued. Both were off-duty.

KGO reported that the weapon used in the incident was a "hydrant spanner," aka hydrant wrench.

The victim, 56-year-old Gabriel Shin, suffered a broken left arm, a swollen right arm and a concussion.

Police and EMS responded after neighbors called 911, and Shin was transported to the hospital.

Muhammad reportedly left the scene and surrendered days later at Santa Rita Jail. He pleaded not guilty, posted bail and is scheduled to appear in court in June.
