City Council Member Attacked with a Concrete Block in SF

June 12, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—A Millbrae city council member was attacked in San Francisco in broad daylight while on a walk with his family.

Anders Fung was with his wife and two teen children, walking near Land’s End on Saturday, June 11, around 5 p.m.

That’s when Fung was suddenly hit on the head with a concrete block, causing him to fall to the ground and nearly lose consciousness, reports ABC7.

When his daughter chased after the two unidentified men to take photos and call 911, they allegedly flashed an obscene gesture at her and continued to pelt Fung with more heavy objects from about 20 feet away.

Fung suffered a two-inch laceration that required staples and has a herniated disc on his neck, according to ABC7.

“I want everyone to understand it’s important to speak out so that law enforcement understands it… that our policymakers understand how it impacts our community and how important it is for us to take action to stop these senseless violence and hate… it is important we bring these perps to justice so this doesn’t happen again.” He continued to encourage others “don’t be afraid to speak out and report this to law enforcement,” Fung told Dion Lim.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

“Seeing them step up my rescue (makes me feel) if anything happens to them in the future they have this sense of responsibility and they’ll step up,” Fung said.

Authorities responded to the scene, however, the suspects were not apprehended and the investigation is ongoing.
