Suspect Arrested and Charged with Attempted Homicide for Assault on Elderly Woman

San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) announced the arrest of Curtis Dubbels, a 21-year-old suspect, for the attempted homicide of an 81-year-old woman. The incident occurred on July 27 at approximately 2:20 p.m. in the 1000 block of Franklin Street.

According to SFPD, officers from the Northern Station promptly responded to the scene following reports of an assault. They found the elderly victim, who recounted the shocking incident. She stated that she was in the vicinity of Franklin and Myrtle streets the previous day around 5 p.m. It was then that an unidentified individual approached her without any provocation and violently pushed her off the sidewalk.

The forceful shove knocked the elderly woman off her feet, causing her to dangerously topple into a nearby lane of traffic. As a result of the fall, she incurred head injuries. The victim was immediately rushed to the hospital, where she received treatment for her injuries.

SFPD’s General Work Detail investigators thoroughly reviewed surveillance footage capturing the assault. Images of the assailant were swiftly shared throughout the department to aid in his identification and capture.

Only two days later, on July 29 at approximately 11:22 a.m., officers from the Northern Station responded to a call reporting an individual wielding an edged weapon. Prompt action taken by the officers led to the detention of the suspect, Curtis Dubbels. One of the officers recognized him as the same person involved in the prior assault, leading to his subsequent arrest.

Dubbels was taken into custody and transported to SF County Jail. He now faces multiple charges, including attempted homicide, aggravated assault with force resulting in great bodily injury, elder abuse, elder abuse enhancement, as well as three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

The investigation into this distressing incident remains active, as the SFPD continues to gather evidence and pursue justice for the elderly victim.
