Economic development, one shove and a mug at a time...stop, drop, and roll.

Although this story did not report it, if you check the city's daily summary report, you will note one additional fact about this incident - the victim was described as a Asian female adult. Not trying to be stereotypical, but the victim was probably small in stature. This type of teen-young male adult crime on older females of Asian decent has been very typical in the Bay Area. It now seems to be spreading here. What a gutless thug!
