Man arrested over weekend not a suspect in Muni stabbing

A 31-year-old transient arrested by San Francisco police Saturday after allegedly stabbing a woman in the Tenderloin District is not the
suspect in the September stabbing of a young boy on a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus, police said Monday.

Police said over the weekend that Anthony Bracy bore a physical resemblance to the man who stabbed 11-year-old Hatim Mansori on Sept. 1 on a Muni bus traveling through the Mission District and then fled.

But spokesman Sgt. Wilfred Williams said Monday that police have learned Bracy was in custody at the time of Mansori's stabbing.

Bracy was arrested late Saturday morning after allegedly trying to rob a woman at Jones and Sutter streets as she walked to work.

The woman was then stabbed, police said. She is expected to survive.

Mansori's attacker was described at the time as a possibly homeless, “scruffy-looking” black man with dark facial hair, 25 to 35 years
old, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, and about 190 pounds. He also had a strong body odor, witnesses said.

He was wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and dark shoes at the time.

Mansori, who was riding home on the bus alone, was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital with critical injuries but later recovered. He was released from the hospital on Sept. 11.
