Police officer in skateboard attack released from hospital

A South San Francisco Police officer who was seriously injured in November has been released from the hospital, the department says.

Officer Robby Chon, a 12-year veteran of the South San Francisco Police Department (SSFPD), responded to reports of an irate man at the 300 block of Grand Avenue on Thanksgiving Day.

Suspect Alberto Ramos-Coreas, who was allegedly causing the disturbance, fled the scene on his skateboard with Chon in pursuit. Ramos-Coreas stopped and swung his skateboard at the officer, hitting him in the head.

Chon suffered a skull fracture and had to undergo surgery. He was released from the hospital on Dec. 21, and was able to return home. According to SSFPD, he will require intense and continual rehabilitation, but doctors and therapists are optimistic about the outcome.

“He is very happy to make it home for Christmas and the support from the community has helped make it possible,” stated a news release.
