Attacks in Oakland’s Chinatown spark concern, battle over police budget cuts
Oakland’s Chinatown has been hit with a series of attacks and thefts that have left the community on edge.
Video from a surveillance camera captures a Jan. 31 attack on an elderly man. The footage, taken from a camera at the corner of Harrison and 8th streets and time-stamped just after noon, shows a man in a hooded sweatshirt forcibly shoving his target, who is walking on the sidewalk. The older man falls face-first into the pavement, narrowly missing a metal bike rack, as his attacker walks past.
