Asian Grandma Fights Attacker, Sends Him To Hospital In A Stretcher




  • Xiao Zhen Xie, 76, became a victim of an unprovoked attack after a man punched her in broad daylight.
  • The brave old woman, however, fought back against the attacker after picking up a stick.
  • Xie’s family said she has been left “traumatized” because of the experience.

76-year-old Xiao Zhen Xie was just standing on Market Street when, out of nowhere, a man suddenly punched her in the face. The 39-year-old attacker, however, eventually realized that she messed with the wrong woman.

Xie spotted a stick and started fighting back. The attacker ended up in a stretcher – with lots of cuts in his face – as he was taken to a hospital.

“You bum, why did you bully me? He hit me, he hit me!” she yelled in Taishanese.

Xie’s daughter Dong-Mei Li said that her mother has been left “very traumatized” following the incident. “The right eye still cannot see anything and (is) still bleeding and we have something to absorb the bleeding.“

The police had to hold the old woman to stop her from hitting him again.

The family later created a GoFundMe page to help raise money for Xie’s medical expenses.

John Chen, grandson of Xie, wrote on the page “I am amazed by her bravery.”

He continued:

“She was the one that defended herself from this unprovoked attack. But she is now suffering two serious black eyes and one that is bleeding unstoppably. Her wrist has also swelled up. She has been severely affected mentally, physically, and emotionally. She also stated that she is afraid to step out of her home from now on. This traumatic event has left her with PTSD.”

As of this writing, donations have surpassed the initial goal of 500,000 and is now at almost 590,000.

Meanwhile, San Francisco Police chief Bill Scott said about the rising number of hate crimes against Asians:

“We have to do our job and we have to investigate these cases with all resources brought to bear and we need to make arrests, and we’ve done that.”

Mayor London Breed, on the other hand, added:

“We need to understand, not only what is going on, but why these attacks occur. Because in some cases they didn’t include any robbery or theft.”
