Two elderly Asian women are recovering after this brazen and heinous stabbing in San Francisco — so brutal the blade broke off inside one of the victims.
The attack happened Tuesday around 5 PM along Market Street where an 84-year-old and 63-year-old were randomly attacked by a man. You can see he comes up behind them, completely unprovoked and stabs them with a knife reportedly bigger than one of the victim’s arms.
The 63-year-old was stabbed in the back, and then the attacker moved over to the 84-year-old, and used so much force while stabbing her, his knife was lodged in her body — according to KGO-TV reporter Dion Lim, who first obtained the video
The older victim suffered a punctured lung, and her family shared her X-ray showing the huge blade which doctors later removed.
San Francisco PD says the 63-year-old victim suffered non-life threatening injuries. Both women remain hospitalized.
Cops identified 54-year-old Patrick Thompson as the suspect — he was arrested a couple of hours after the attack and booked on 2 charges of attempted murder and elder abuse. Investigators are working to determine if the incident was motivated by racial bias.
