WATCH: San Fran Judge Releases Woman Beater, So His Victim Shares What He Did

Despite the apparently worsening homeless crisis in San Francisco, a judge there released a transient back on the streets, despite violently assaulting a woman 72 hours before.

Now, she's releasing video of her attack.

The Daily Wire's James Barret has more:

The incident took place early Sunday morning outside the Watermak apartment complex where Paneez Kosarian lives. Kosarian was allegedly approached by Austin James Vincent, a 25-year-old homeless man, who began to say at first strange, then increasingly threatening things.

"Kosarian was attempting to get into the building, which is located near Beale and Bryant Streets by the Embarcadero, when Vincent refused to let her inside without him and told her everyone is a robot and he is the last human on earth," San Francisco's KRON 4 reports. When he allegedly asked her to hand over her wallet and cell phone, which she refused, she tried to get into the door of her apartment complex. That's when she says he assaulted her — an attack caught on security cameras.

"Arrested at the scene, Vincent was arraigned on Tuesday after entering a plea of not guilty to charges of false imprisonment, attempted robbery and two counts of battery and was released," the outlet reports.

Despite the seriousnes of the charges, and the available evidence, the suspect was released within less than 72 hours by San Francisco Superior Court Judge Christine Van Aken, who simply asked him to "report to a caseworker on condition of his release," KRON 4 notes.
