Authorities said that a California man who was recently released from prison after attempting to kill an elderly man aged 89 stabbed this week a San Francisco worker in a bakery.
Fook Poy Lai (61), walked into AA Bakery & Cafe in the morning on Monday and stabbed a 58 year-old woman.
Brooke Jenkins said that the alleged Chinatown attack left a woman severely injured and shocked a whole neighborhood. “I pledge my unwavering dedication to the pursuit of justice and making sure that this suspect is held responsible for this senseless act.”
Henry Chan, the owner of the Chinatown Bakery, told Fox San Francisco he had followed Lai and told him to remain outside.
He said, “He didn’t flee. He just slowly walked away.”
The victim was an immigrant to Hong Kong who was transported to hospital with serious injuries. Lai is charged with attempted murder and assault with a dangerous weapon. He has also been charged with battery causing severe bodily injuries, false imprisonment, and second-degree theft.
Lai was released on May 20th, 2016 from prison for the stabbing in Portsmouth Square of San Francisco in 2016. He was sentenced for nine years.
Chan informed the media outlet that thevictim is his father. The authorities said that the two incidents were unrelated.
