A 61-year-old Vietnamese woman died from injuries after being beaten in an attempted robbery in Alameda, California, earlier this month.
According to Alameda police, a fight broke out on April 6 around 11 p.m. in front of a Vietnamese restaurant, Pho Anh Dao, and Bucket of Crawfish on 1919 Webster Street, KTVU Fox 2 reported.
Cindy Le, the restaurant’s owner, and an unidentified 28-year-old man also sustained serious traumatic injuries in the assault.
The two suspects fled the scene when the police arrived and are currently still at large.
The man was treated and released from a local hospital, but Le, who was hit in the head several times, died a few days after the attack on April 10, according to CBS San Francisco.
“The Alameda Police Department is deeply saddened and outraged by this selfish and vicious crime,” Lt. Wayland Gee said on April 12. “Our condolences go out to the family members of the deceased.”
In the clip released by police, a five person brawl can be seen on the streets while another man watches on a nearby porch. It’s unclear where Le was during this street brawl.
Gee said that the Alameda Police Department has already devoted “every available investigative resource exclusively to this case,” but no suspects have been arrested yet.
Anyone with information are urged to call the police department at (510) 337-8340 or the anonymous tip line at (510) 337-8450.
