Neighborhood Assault

Update: Saturday 9/30. The assailant in the Shaws attack is being held without bail and faces up to eight years in prison if convicted.

On Wednesday, September 27th a man assaulted the owner, manager and an employee of Shaws Candy store on West Portal Avenue. This short article includes some details.

The West Portal Merchants Association and GWPNA have already written letters to Nancy Tung (with the District Attorney’s office) asking that the violent attacker be held in custody while his case proceeds, rather than releasing him back to the public as is normally done.
