Conviction in Daly City Attack That Blinded Widow

Henry K. Lee, San Francisco Chronicle, December 2, 2010

A man has been convicted of charges that he beat and blinded a 78-year-old widow inside her Daly City home after she surprised him during a robbery attempt.

Jose Perez-Gonzalez, 31, an illegal immigrant who was living in South San Francisco, broke into the woman’s home in the Serramonte neighborhood Jan. 12, 2008, by prying open a rear sliding-glass door. When the woman confronted him, Perez-Gonzalez beat her in the face with his metal pry bar, an attack that left her blind.

Perez-Gonzalez intended to burglarize the residence when no one was there, authorities said.

Police tracked him to his hometown of Guadalajara, where Mexican authorities arrested him in November 2008.
