SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A woman was seriously injured in Chinatown on Monday when a neighbor struck her with a frying pan handle, police said.

The assault happened some time between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in the 800 block of Clay Street, police said.

The 63-year-old victim was washing dishes in the common area of a building when a neighbor allegedly grabbed her from behind. The neighbor then struck her with a metal object, jumped on her, and hit her repeatedly.

Police determined that object was a frying pan handle.

The suspect also allegedly choked the victim, causing her to pass out.

The victim was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police have arrested a 67-year-old woman, whose identity has not been released.
