UK Tourist Knifed By Mugger In California Dies

A British tourist who was stabbed in the head by a robber in San Francisco has died, police in California have confirmed. Paul Tam had been left in a life-threatening condition after the attack on 18 February, which unfolded as he walked down the street with his niece. On Thursday, the 44-year-old died of his injuries in a local hospital.

Officers have now released video footage of the brutal murder, in the hope that the public will be able to help them track down two suspects. One of the robbers is described as a heavily built black male who was seen wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans, while the other is a black woman with long dreadlocks or braids in a ponytail. Witnesses said there had been a scuffle between Mr Lam and one of the robbers as he struggled to hold on to a bag which contained his mobile, passport and cash.

“Please contact investigators if you were in the area near the time of the crime, observed any suspicious activity, or if you have any information regarding the identity of the suspects,” a San Francisco police spokesman said.
