Jorge Devis-Milton, 32, has been arrested by the San Francisco Police Department. He is accused of attacking two men in San Francisco, California, United States on March 15, 2021.
At around 1:30 p.m. that day, Devis-Milton allegedly stabbed a man, 64, in his cheek and knocked him to the ground at 16th and Mission streets in San Francisco. The victim, whose name has yet to be released, was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Around 30 minutes later, Danilo Yu Chang, 59, of Vallejo, Solano County, California was walking on Market Street in San Francisco when he was allegedly attacked by Devis-Milton. The victim is a travel agent of Chinese and Filipino descent.
Commuting from outside San Francisco, Yu Chang had just finished his lunch break and was on his way back to work at the time. It was the first day he was back at work since the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic started.
Yu Chang sustained head injuries. He told KPIX 5 reporter Betty Yu, “I cannot see on my left eye.”
“It’s still so bad I cannot see anything,” Yu Chang continued. “On my right, it’s okay. I hope I don’t lose my vision here.”
According to the Asian-American man, he did not even see his attacker and none of his belongings was stolen. He said, “They didn’t rob me so I think it’s a hate crime.”
One of the witnesses told SFPD officers that Devis-Milton ran up to Chang and repeatedly punched the Asian-American man. The victim fell to the ground and laid motionless while the attacker fled the scene on a Muni bus.
At around 9:28 a.m. on March 16, 2021, SFPD officers assigned to Mission District Station located Devis-Milton and arrested him. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon other than firearm, aggravated assault likely to cause great bodily injury, aggravated mayhem and battery causing serious injury for attacking the 64-year-old man at 16th and Mission streets.
For attacking Yu Chang on Market Street, Devis-Milton was charged with battery causing serious injury and aggravated assault likely to cause great bodily injury. The SFPD neither released the suspect’s mugshots nor revealed his residence.
