On August 10, 2022, at approximately 11:52 a.m., San Francisco Police Officers assigned to Richmond Station responded to the area of 26th Ave and Geary Blvd on a report of a battery that just occurred. Upon arrival, officers met with a 65-year-old female victim who told officers that she was walking on Geary Boulevard near 26th Avenue when an unknown male suspect walked in front of her and punched her several times. The victim said that the assault was unprovoked, and she suffered non-life-threatening injuries as a result. Following the attack, the suspect fled the scene.
Investigators obtained video of the suspect who was later positively identified as 35-year-old Terence Chrisman of San Francisco.
