He is additionally suspected of being involved in at least two other violent incidents in the neighborhood.
58-year-old Samuel Youmtoub lives in San Francisco and has been accused of being the aggressor in three assaults, one of which allegedly took place in early February, while the other two happened in May, three months later, and within days of each other.
On February 4, a man had unexpectedly run into Youmtoub after having a prior interaction with him, and the man decided to walk away to avoid making contact with him again.
