The man who attacked an elderly Filipino outside of a San Diego Trolley early last month has been arrested in Texas.
Israel Valdivia, who has a long criminal record, was arrested in Runnel’s County, Texas just before the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Valdivia stole a vehicle and led police on a chase through Texas resulting in his arrest.
The 24-year old is expected to be extradited to California where he is accused of stabbing 71-year-old Filipino Jose Serra multiple times after the two got off of a trolley.
Community leaders have said that Serra has since been released from the hospital and is recovering from home.
As he recovers from his multiple surgeries, a fundraiser is being planned within the next few weeks to help Serra who had been struggling with work and health issues.
