But because her grandmother's face is shattered, along with a broken spine, hand and ribs, she can't hug or kiss her, so she organized a vigil on Sunday to send her healing thoughts and positivity.

Investigators believe the unknown suspect attacked the victim in the park and then entered her home across the street before fleeing the area. The suspect is described as a black male in his thirties, approximately 5'6" tall with a skinny build.

No arrests have been made, but investigators have been reviewing video from the neighborhood and speaking to witnesses.

The San Francisco Police Officers Association is offering a $10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction whoever assaulted Huang.

And Yee has organized a fundraiser to raise money to increase the reward or to help with her grandmother's medical bills if no reward is collected.

Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD 24 hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.
