In the video, the woman, identified as Lisa, can be seen struggling to save her Louis Vuitton bag from one of the two male suspects.

The man threatens to shoot her and eventually does, but only with what she thinks might be “a fake gun or a BB gun of some sort,” according to ABC7 News anchor Dion Lim.

Lisa believes she was targeted for being Asian. She has since reported the incident to police, who also found evidence of casings, Lim noted.


The attack has drawn mixed reactions on Instagram.

“You don’t think that maybe she was targeted for the expensive bag she was carrying around and not because she’s Asian?” one user questioned.

Another commented, “This would happen if California doesn’t make laws that protect criminals and actually punishes them.”
