When officers arrived on scene, they located a 79-year female victim that had been assaulted. The victim was boarding the 38 Line coach at Geary Boulevard and Laguna Street when an unknown male suspect, in an unprovoked attack, kicked the victim in the abdomen with enough force to knock her to the ground.

Officers rendered aid and summoned medics to the scene. Medics transported the victim to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
