SFPD arrests suspect in Tenderloin cane beating homicide

SFPD have arrested a Stockton resident accused of murdering a 65-year-old San Francisco resident in the Tenderloin earlier this fall.

On September 6, SFPD responded to reports of an aggravated assault to find 65-year-old Harvey Grosser laying on the ground on the unit block of 6th Street (near Market). An unidentified female suspect allegedly beat him with a metal cane.

Grosser was transported to the hospital in life-threatening condition. He received treatment for a skull fracture, but did not recover from his injuries. 

SFPD’s Homicide Detail launched an investigation into the incident and identified 39-year-old Jamila Moore of Stockton as the suspect. With assistance from the Stockton Police Department, officers arrested Moore there on October 23.

Moore was interviewed by SFPD homicide investigators, and has been charged with Grosser’s murder and booked into San Francisco County Jail.

Although a suspect has been arrested, SFPD still encourage anyone with information about the September 6 incident to contact the anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the start of the message.
