|3/19/2020||Man||Asian woman, Yuanyuan Zhu||On a busy San Francisco street in the broad light of day, Yuanyuan Zhu was harassed and spit on by a stranger simply for being Asian in the midst of a global pandemic caused by what the president of the United Stats calls the “Chinese virus.”|
Zhu had just been dropped off near the corner of Van Ness Avenue and Geary Boulevard when a man walking past her on the sidewalk shouted “fu** China” while staring directly at her.
She immediately thought to get away from him by crossing the street but there were too many cars and the light was against her.
Instead she tried to keep her distance, hoping that was the end of his outburst.
But, as a bus rolled past, the man again yelled out, this time screaming at the driver to “run them all over,” Zhu said.
He turned to her and she knew it was coming.
“Please don’t,” she said. “Right after I said that, he spit on me,” Zhu said. “I didn’t really know what to do.”
Zhu made it to the safety of her nearby gym before the man was able “to do something else,” she said but the experience left her shaken, terrified.

“You f–king Chinese,” he shouted to the man, police sources said.
“He kept yelling, and I was afraid he was going to touch my son,” the victim said.

Mobile phone video of the attack shows Quianyang trying to fend off his attacker, who can be seen lurching over him and repeatedly stabbing the man as he lies in a pool of his own blood.
One of the knife thrusts struck the victim in his heart, a police source said Sunday.
The attacker “was on top of him stabbing him,” a police source told The Post."

“Tell him to move,” he said — before a woman off camera asked why the man should move.
“Because he’s standing right f–king next to me! … Tell him to move. Tell him to move,” the man raged.
He later grabbed a bottle of Febreze air freshener, which he was carrying in a bag, and began spraying in the rider’s direction."
|"Police responded to a 911 call for the incident but the train had already left the station.|
“The train was no longer there [at the station], so we were unable to take a report,” Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said at a crime briefing on Thursday. “We are investigating it right now. Our Hate Crimes Task Force is reviewing the incident and it’s an ongoing investigation.”"
