Police announced the arrest of a man in San Francisco Thursday accused of shoving a woman into the street without provocation, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It happened just two days earlier near Portsmouth Square which many consider the living room of Chinatown.
The victim is only described as a 53-year-old Asian woman. According to KRON, she fell into the roadway on Jackson near Kearny Street and hit her head on the ground. Medics took her to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police arrested 30-year-old Alejandro Garcia based on evidence obtained through surveillance video.
CBS5 reports that jail records indicate Garcia is being held without bail.
