Bobby Brown, he of the strong body odor, charged with 15 felonies in four separate incidents, faces 72 years to life
The infamous Muni stabber’s infamous “strong body odor” is now safely behind bars, District Attorney Kamala Harris was happy to announce on Wednesday night.
Local transient and multi-county repeat offender Bobby Brown, 30, will be arraigned at 9 AM Thursday in both the stabbing of a 24-year old woman on a J-Church train on Monday and in the stabbing of an 11-year old boy on the 49-Van Ness/Mission line in September, Harris told a group of reporters at a hastily-arranged press conference.
Brown used a corkscrew in the Monday stabbing, not a knife, according to a DA spokesman.
Brown will also be charged in the Nov. 26 stabbing of a woman heading to a homeless shelter with her three children on McAllister Street and in one more incident, details of which are pending, the DA said. Update: From a release sent by the DA’s office, the fourth incident Brown’s been charged with is the Nov.14 stabbing of a 25-year-old woman at Sutter and Jones. Accodring to the DA’s office, Brown allegedly asked the victim for money, “she kept walking, and he came up to her and stabbed her twice in the waist.”
Brown’s most striking feature, never failing to be mentioned in the media, is a “strong body odor.” He was also charged with assault in 2004 after punching a woman on the BART system, The Examiner reported, and served time in San Mateo County Jail for indecent exposure in Half Moon Bay, the Anschutz organ also tells us.
Those left quaking in their boots, hiding indoors and/or holding their noses during Brown’s malodorous maraud can now breathe — and ride Muni — easy, for “We are ending tonight this defendant’s reign of terror,” Harris said.
In all, Brown faces 15 felony charges, Harris said. For those keeping score at home, they are — four counts of attempted murder, four counts of assault with a deadly weapon, four counts of battery with a deadly weapon, and two counts of battery on a person on transit. So for those slapping fools on buses, be advised: that’s double jeopardy, son.
If convicted of all charges, Brown’s stank will be behind bars for 72 years to life, Harris said.
Brown was held in custody as a suspect in the September incident but was released after the boy failed to identify him. The boy had a second chance to identify him on Wednesday, according to The Examiner, when presumably he fingered Brown as his attacker.
