Elderly Woman Dies After Richmond Sexual Assault

Sun KwonThe January sexual assault of Sun Kwon (82) proved to be fatal in the long run, as the elderly El Cerrito woman died in hospital on Tuesday.

The assault occurred near the Richmond Big-O Tires on 10733 San Pablo Avenue, January the 28th. After the perpetrator departed, the manager found the victim around 9:15a.m., seriously injured and barely conscious. She had apparently been repeatedly kicked or punched in the head, then hidden behind a pile of old tires.

As of yet, no arrests have been made, and police are hoping for someone with information regarding the incident to come forward. Area searches, surveillance, and witness accounts turned up nothing useful. Sun Kwon herself was unable to aid police due to the debilitating nature of her injuries. A $10,000 reward is being offered for any information or tips that lead to an arrest and conviction.

Pablo SandovalSandoval met the detectives at the Sheriff’s Department, where his lawyer, Eric Geffon, claimed that the incident was little more than a "consensual, personal relationship of a sexual nature."

Sandoval has continued to offer his full cooperation with the Sheriff’s Department throughout the course of the ongoing investigation. The Department stated Monday that it hopes to complete the prime of the investigation by the end of the week, though forensic evidence analysis will take longer than a week to complete.
