Xie Sends Attacker to Hospital in San Francisco
The violent confrontation occurred around 10 a.m. on March 17 at the intersection of Market Street and Charles J. Brenham Place in San Francisco.
Xie told KPIX-TV she was leaning against a light pole waiting to cross the street when a stranger suddenly punched her in the face. She said the attack was unprovoked.
One of the witnesses who took a video of the aftermath was KPIX Sports Director Dennis O’Donnell, who had been jogging in the area. O’Donnell said Xie waved the wooden paddle in one hand and held an ice pack to her face with the other.
She was visibly distraught and yelled out in Chinese, “This bum, he hit me,” as paramedics handcuffed the man to a stretcher. O’Donnell added, “From what I could see, she wanted more of the guy on the stretcher and the police were holding her back.”
According to CNN, Xie was also telling the first responders, “He bullied me, he bullied me, jerk” and “He bullies old people so I gave a punch.”
As of this writing, the suspect had only been identified as a 39-year-old white man. The suspect was also accused of assaulting an 83-year-old Asian man just minutes before encountering Xie. The San Francisco PD confirmed to Heavy via email that the suspect had been “involved in a physical altercation in U.N. Plaza.” About 30 minutes after the initial altercation, the suspect “approached the male victim and assaulted him.”
According to police, a local security guard was alerted to this assault and chased after the suspect on foot. As the suspect ran away, he came upon Xie and attacked her as well. Police said the security guard detained the suspect until officers arrived at the scene.
The police spokesperson did not comment on Xie’s defense of herself in the email with Heavy. Police explained the suspect was hospitalized due to “an unrelated, prior medical condition.” The statement included, “Investigators are working to determine if bias was a motivating factor in the incident.”
