According to his family, a store clerk who was attacked by a thief last week and was in a coma for a week has passed away from his injuries.

Yowhannes Tewelde has been named as the victim. His family reports that he passed away on Tuesday just before 2:30 p.m.

Yowhannes Tewelde, who was he?

The age of Yowhannes Tewelde was 60. ‘John’ was another name for him. Following the assault last Thursday at a market in the Outer Richmond District at the junction of Balboa and 41st Avenues, he fell into a coma.

When he intervened to stop a thief who assaulted him while he was on duty at a nearby neighborhood market, he suffered a brain injury. His daughter, Meron Tewelde, revealed that despite having two surgeries, he never fully recovered consciousness. I was at home, she affirmed. My mother contacts me by phone. The hospital is where my dad is. I didn’t anticipate it to be this serious. We are here.

The owner of the market disclosed that the assault took place on Thursday around 9:30 p.m. when the perpetrator first entered the store and stole water. Ten minutes later, he came back to steal two beers.

According to the owner, Yowhannes brandished a bat close to the store’s entrance in an effort to deter the thief. Yowhannes hit his head on the ground as a result of the man’s unfortunate ability to knock him down, as seen in surveillance footage. The same person allegedly then struck Yowhannes with the bat before fleeing the scene quickly. The man is still at large and unidentified at this time.

According to media reports, Yowhannes only recently received U.S. citizenship. He had heart surgery in March as well, which emphasizes the difficulties he had to overcome before the tragic event.

Meron stated, “He didn’t wait to return to work because he wanted to be there. He went right after his heart surgery. There’s something special about the neighborhood he adores. Everyone there is loved by him.
