Letter to the Editor: Retail Worker Assaulted


I have lived in the Richmond District for 17 years. For the last 10 months I have been employed at Standard Plumbing Ace Hardware on Clement Street. Yesterday afternoon I was punched in the face and pushed to the ground by two men who were attacking my manager over their not wearing masks properly.

It was a little of an all-out brawl that moved into the small parking lot out front and was witnessed by many startled customers. The police were called (case # 200543367) and I ended up going to the Kaiser emergency room by SFFD ambulance. There I received stitches in my cheek and scalp and was also diagnosed with a sore back from being tackled and pushed to the ground.

I have always loved your publication and it’s police blotter section so I thought you might find this of possible interest. Thank you and please continue your valuable local reporting.

  1. Adam,

    I am so sorry you had to endure such idiots. These people who ignore properly wearing a mask are nothing but Bio-Terrorists in my book and in a just world would be treated as such.

    Even if one does not believe in Science and think that masks do nothing…if it puts others at ease when why the hell not wear one? What happened to courtesy to others? If they are scared and you are not, then why not put them at ease?

    I hope that people who hear about this press the DA for the maximum punishment that can be afforded to these idiots. I also hope a lawyer hears about this and offers to give you pro bono representation and you go after these idiots for your lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.

    4 Decades in the Richmond.
