Bystanders helped San Francisco Police arrest a parolee who assaulted and robbed an elderly Asian woman on Tuesday morning near Japantown in San Francisco.
The incident: Luis Jorrin, a 28-year-old Black male, allegedly beat a 77-year-old Asian female and took her purse at the intersection of Laguna and Ellis streets at around 11 a.m., reported KPIX5.
  • According to police records, Jorrin approached the victim from behind and slammed her to the ground before beating her.
  • A witness named Michael told KPIX5 that he saw a construction worker run over and knock the suspect away from the victim, but the suspect was able to grab her purse and escape. 
  • The victim later said that she is now “physically okay” following the ordeal. 
Good Samaritans: The suspect was eventually apprehended after Michael and another bystander cornered him at a post office and held him until the police arrived. 
  • Evan, a 23-year-old security guard who was on duty at the Chinese consulate nearby, said the victim came up to her asking for help. 
  • Michael and Evan allegedly ran after the fleeing suspect and were able to stop him from getting away.
  • Police arrived and arrested Jorrin for “robbery, elder abuse, parole violation and committing a crime while out on bail.”
  • Court records revealed that Jorrin had been arrested “at least ten times in the last 5 years for charges including robbery, attempted robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon.”
  • SFPD is reportedly not investigating this incident as a hate crime.
