Good day. My name is Wu. I and my wife own the convenience store on seventh street. I did not know this Alice, but I come down here because she was brave.

That boy that did this, he is always trouble. When I see him, I begin to watch closely. When I saw them hit this lady, I immediately call the police. I thought they would run away, but she kept standing back up and shouting at them. She was pointing and they would hit her again.

But this lady, this Alice, she was unflinching. I wanted to go help, but I stayed on the phone urging them to come quick.

I didn’t know this lady, but I know what that boy is like and I wanted to say how brave she was. People need to stand up to these… bad guys.

I’m sorry for your loss.
