A 76-year-old Asian woman was recently attacked in San Francisco.

The woman says she was waiting at the traffic light when a man punched her. She says her first instinct was to fight back.

Authorities say she used what appears to be a wooden board to beat the man.

He ended up being taken away on a stretcher.

The woman's family says not only is she still injured, but she is also now too scared to go out outside.

Officers say the man also allegedly attacked an 83-year-old Asian man.

He was being chased by a security guard when he hit the woman.
