SAN FRANCISCO — A suspect has been arrested for the brutal beating of an elderly woman in San Francisco.

On January 8, 2019 at 6:45AM, San Francisco Police officers responded to a home on the 1000 block of Visitacion Avenue. A witness reported seeing an unknown male suspect exit the residence from an interior staircase then walk eastbound on Visitacion Avenue.

Shortly thereafter, an 88 year-old female suffering from severe head injuries was located in a park across the street. The investigation led to evidence linking the subject leaving the residence to the assault. The victim was transported to the hospital and still being treated for life-threatening injuries.

Police say new evidence led to the identification of a suspect. On the evening of January 19 2019, the suspect, 18 year-old Keonte Gathron, was arrested in San Francisco after committing another robbery. A booking photo was unavailable.

“San Francisco Police Department investigators worked tirelessly to identify a suspect in this case,” said San Francisco Police Chief William Scott. “This is an ongoing investigation and we will have further details to follow later in the week. But we want to express our gratitude to neighbors and leaders in the Visitacion Valley community who worked closely with our investigators to address this act of senseless violence.”

The woman is still fighting for her life.
