Both women were taken to a hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. One had a bandage around her head as she was getting into an ambulance.

The situation came as a shock to Seattle resident Jon Santos who is visiting the Bay Area “It’s a little surprising to hear that because when I was looking around here this area seems pretty safe,” Santos said.
