2 Asian women stabbed in San Francisco, suspect in custody
SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco police arrested a suspect in a double stabbing that injured two Asian women on Tuesday evening.
One of the women is 85-years-old.
This attack appears to be unprovoked, police said.
Witnesses say the two women were waiting at a bus stop when a man carrying a knife attacked them at 4th and Market streets in the downtown area.
Video from Citizen App shows the attack happened in broad daylight. Police were called just before 5 p.m. on reports of a stabbing.
A GoFundMe was established Wednesday by the grandchildren of the 85-year-old victim.
Victoria Eng and her brother Andrew say that their grandmother was waiting for a MUNI bus when she was stabbed with a long knife in her right arm, which entered into her chest.
