This incident comes as San Fran is still reeling from the heinous stabbing attack on 2 elderly Asian women. That suspect was captured and charged with attempted murder.As we first told you … “Crazy Rich Asians” star Henry Golding says the recent attacks have him concerned for the elderly members of his family, and he says the folks preying on the elderly are cowards.From a woman placing hate-filled letters on resident’s doors demanding Asians leave the country immediately back in May of 2020, to a brazen daytime robbery outside a Bank of America where an older Asian man was knocked to the ground and unable to get up.
While police can’t say for certain how many incidents are hate crimes or were race-motivated Lt. Kahn says the numbers don’t lie. In response, the department has boosted patrol numbers and is working with the DA on finding solutions to the challenges of dealing with minors who are released only to re-offend.
The 80-year old victim from Saturday’s attack was robbed of a watch and sustained minor injuries. He believes the crime was hate-motivated. Police say because the victim called out for help the suspects took off. However, a similar vehicle was seen in a strong-armed robbery in San Leandro less than two hours later. The victim in that incident is described as a younger woman who was robbed of her purse.
