Woman Filming Beating in San Francisco Dies After Assailant Stabs Her in the Head

A woman who witnessed a man beating a woman on a sidewalk in San Francisco was fatally stabbed by the suspect after she started recording him on her cell phone.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported 61-year-old Veronica Soliz had walked outside her building when she saw the attack and called police.

Soliz’s ex-husband, Jack Schwindler, tells the newspaper she then followed the assailant and was recording him with her cell phone when the man turned on her and stabbed her in the head Wednesday. She died after being rushed to a hospital.

Police arrested 49-year-old Arthur Finch and he was booked into jail late Wednesday. He was later charged with murder, attempted murder, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence and other charges.
