The South San Francisco Police Department officer who was viciously attacked by an illegal alien last Thursday has been identified as Robby Chon, a 12-year veteran of the police force.
Chon currently remains in serious condition after he sustained a major head injury after being assaulted with a skateboard on Thanksgiving Day.
The suspect in the assault had been identified as Luis Alberto Ramos-Coreas, 28, of South San Francisco. Ramos-Coreas has a criminal history including felony battery, according to ABC 7 News.
It was reported that at approximately 2:20 p.m. a citizen flagged down an officer about a disturbance at a business in the 300 block of Grand Avenue.
As Police tried to approach Ramos-Coreas he allegedly refused to comply before fleeing on his skateboard just as a second officer arrived at the scene.
Chon started chasing Ramos-Coreas, who suddenly turned and struck him in the head with the skateboard. Chon was quickly transported to the hospital in critical condition, and the suspect continued to run before he was taken into custody by officers.
“The officer is a 12 year veteran of the South San Francisco police department he is married and has two young children,” said South San Francisco Police Dept. Chief Jeff Azzopardi.
A GoFundme page has been set up for the Chon family, and it has already raised over $106,000 in just three days.
