The DA’s office has also released more details on this new (to us) Muni stabbing: they say that the victim, a 41-year-old woman, was stabbed at 6:10 PM on May 12 while on the N Judah, after “the suspect had approached her and stabbed her several times for no apparent reason” and “never said anything during the incident.” He “then exited the train and disappeared” says the DA’s office.
After the stabbing a witness called 911, and SFPD came to 9th and Judah, where they saw the victim bleeding from the arm. She was treated at St. Mary’s.
According to the CA’s office, the victim had provided the police with a description of the suspect, and “subsequently made an identification of Brown as the man who attacked her.”
However, according to Bay City News, Brown’s attorney V. Roy Lefcourt indicated that he will challenge witnesses’ identification of his client as the attacker. He said some of the descriptions given do not match Brown.
Bobby Brown will be back in court tomorrow at 9 AM, where he’s scheduled to be arraigned and enter a plea. Lefcourt said after Brown’s initial appearance in court last week that his client told him he was not guilty.
3:00 PM: According to a release sent by SFPD this afternoon, investigators have have identified alleged Muni stabber Bobby Brown as the suspect in an additional Muni stabbing. They say a 40-year-old female passenger was stabbed on the N Judah at 9th and Judah on May 12, 2009. The victim, they say, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Charges have yet to be filed by the DA’s office, but we’re told they’re forthcoming.
