Torrance police are expected to reveal the identity of woman who unleashed racist tirades against three people at a local park.
The woman was captured on camera throwing insults and racist remarks in two separate incidents at Charles H. Wilson Park — telling a woman to “Go back to whatever (expletive) Asian country you belong in” and targeting a man and his 11-year-old son during a separate instance.
With a fake accent, the woman said to the man repeatedly: “You understand me, China man?”
On Friday, the Torrance Police Department announced a 3 p.m. press conference to release the woman’s identity. Authorities described her as a suspect in hateful speech and assault.
Meanwhile, a handful of protesters gathered earlier Friday at the park where the incidents occurred — some holding signs as they demonstrated against racism.
During the incident involving a man and his 11-year-old son, the woman told the man: “Do you know who my family is? You are so (expletive). You are going to get (expletive). You’re kids are gonna get (expletive).”
It’s unclear if the woman is in custody.
