The video, shot on Meadowlark Dr. near Clay Bank Rd., shows a man grabbing the woman’s wrist and backpack strap as they walked and the woman is heard crying. A minivan then pulls up and the driver steps out, ordering the man to leave the woman alone.
“Let go of her! Let go of her!” she said to the man. “She doesn’t not look all right!”
The woman with the backpack then retreats behind the other woman, who asks her, “Do you want to come with me?”
As the man attempted to approach her again, the minivan driver yelled, “Back off! I will f— you up! You don’t even f—ing know me!”READ MORE: Theft Leaves San Jose Couple Bereft: 'We’re Heartbroken, All Our Precious Things Are Gone'
