The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and Smith fled the scene prior to the police's arrival.

Aldon Smith seemed to be getting his life in order last month when he got engaged and was focused on returning to the NFL.

Former Oakland Raiders EDGE man Aldon Smith has found himself in the headlines once again for the wrong reasons following a domestic violence incident that occurred over the weekend. Investigators from the SFPD Special Victims Unit want to interview Smith about the incident. Smith proposed to McKnight on Valentine's Day.

After the alleged incident occurred, the 28-year-old fled the scene before police arrived around 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Bush Street residence.

Nearly one year ago, Smith was charged with public intoxication following an accident in which his then-girlfriend hit a police vehicle while driving Smith's SUV. He voluntarily entered rehab and missed five games that season.

"The dispatcher said Smith was wearing a black 49ers sweatshirt and grey sweatpants. San Francisco officers planned to ask Oakland police for assistance".

The Raiders, who signed Smith to a two-year contract extension that would not have paid him unless he was reinstated and played before the 2016 season, did not respond to calls for a comment.

Smith has not played in the National Football League since 2015 but is on the Raiders' reserve/suspended list.

The troubled linebacker has been arrested several times on charges of drunken driving, vandalism and illegal possession of assault rifles among other charges since the San Francisco 49ers drafted him in 2011 in the first round.
