The two women who were viciously attacked in a home invasion robbery in San Francisco’s Sunset District on Thursday night have been upgraded from critical to stable condition, police Chief Greg Suhr said today. The attack was reported at about 9:20 p.m. Thursday in the 1700 block of 20th Avenue, at the home of one of the victims, a 76-year-old woman. Police are still investigating the circumstances of the crime, but Suhr said the suspect apparently believed the woman had “something of value” in the home.
A 56-year-old woman delivering food to the home interrupted the robbery and was also attacked, but was able to flee and get help, according to police. Both women were hospitalized but are now beginning to recover, Suhr said. “The good news of the story is, as seriously hurt as the two women were, this won’t be a homicide,” he said. The suspect, who attacked the women with a hammer and knife, has not been found, according to police.
He is described as a Cantonese-speaking Asian male who drove off in a beige sedan with triangular rear taillights, Suhr said. Police are seeking the public’s help in solving the case. “We’d love to get more tips than we’ve already gotten,” Suhr said.
