Type of Incident Reported: Hate Crime – Battery

Date/Time of Incident: November 7, 2019, between 12:30 and 12:40 PM

Date Reported to DPS: November 8, 2019

Location: Jane Stanford Way near Arguello Way

Suspect Information: White female adult, between 30 and 40 years of age, average build, having short light-brown hair, wearing a black rain coat

Additional Details: On the above date and time, two women (both of Asian descent) were riding their bicycles on Jane Stanford Way approaching Arguello Way. The reporting party, who was not the victim, saw the suspect standing in the roadway of the mall. (The roadway of the mall is not open to public vehicles.) As the victim rode past the suspect, the suspect used both of her hands to push the victim, which caused the victim to fall off of her bicycle. The suspect stared at the victim and then, in a loud, angry manner, referred to victim using a term that was later determined to be an ethnic slur. The suspect then walked away.

The victim declined medical attention and did not want to provide a statement to law enforcement about the incident. The witness made the police report and provided the information about what occurred.

The suspect's identity is not currently known and she remains at-large.
