SFPD Arrests Mission District Elder Abuse Suspect 23-154
On 9/7/23, Mission Station officers responded to a local hospital to meet with a 76-year-old female victim regarding an assault that occurred earlier in the day. The victim reported that she was boarding a MUNI bus at Mission St and 16th St when an unknown suspect pushed her, causing her to fall backward. The victim hit her head on the concrete sidewalk and lost consciousness. The SFPD would like to thank the bystanders who stopped and provided aid to the victim until medics arrived to transport her to the hospital.
While conducting their investigation, Mission officers obtained video footage of the incident, which showed that the suspect appeared to intentionally push the victim, unprovoked, with his body as he exited the bus. The suspect did not stop as the victim screamed and fell backward. General Work investigators took over the investigation.
An internal bulletin was circulated, and officers identified the suspect as Collin White. On 12/4/23, a Mission Station Sergeant located and arrested White without incident. White was booked into the San Francisco County Jail for Felony Assault Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury (245(a)(4) PC), Felony Elder Abuse (368(b)(1) PC), and Parole Violation (3056 PC).
Despite the arrest, this remains an active and ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 1-415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.
