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.
