Man Charged with Stabbing Two Asian Women in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities have filed attempted murder and elder abuse charges against a man who allegedly stabbed two elderly women without warning at a San Francisco bus stop.
Tuesday's attack was the latest in a number of attacks nationwide that involved Asian American victims.
Authorities announced charges Thursday against Patrick Thompson, who had a history of mental health issues.
He wasn't charged with a hate crime, but the district attorney's office says the investigation continues.
The woman, who were in their 60s and 80s, were treated for serious wounds and are expected to survive.
