The man who allegedly stabbed two elderly Asian women in San Francisco earlier this week is now facing multiple charges, including premeditated attempted murder, prosecutors announced Thursday.
The district attorney’s office said it is still working with police to determine if any additional charges should be brought forth, including any evidence to support hate crime allegations.
The women, ages 84 and 63, were stabbed shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday, San Francisco police said.
One victim was stabbed in the lungs, and a knife had to be removed from the second at the hospital, according to the district attorney’s office.
In 2017, a judge found Thompson incompetent to stand trial during court proceedings for several cases, according to the district attorney’s office.
