San Francisco Police officers arrested a man linked to seven robberies and hate crimes against Asian women, police announced Tuesday.

Over the course of six months, 20-year-old O’Sean Garcia allegedly targeted Asian women in the city’s Bayview and Ingleside neighborhoods.

In the latest incident, reported on September 21, Garcia and another suspect allegedly took a 27-year-old woman’s backpack by force before fleeing the scene in a red sedan.

The car was later found in the area of Chester and 5th Streets in Oakland, where officers arrested Garcia last Wednesday.

The San Francisco Robbery Detail investigators recognized the description of the car in six other robbery cases against Asian women dating back from March of 2021.

Garcia was booked at the San Francisco County Jail, and San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced that his office will seek his detention.
