San Francisco police, in cooperation with the San Bruno Police Department, arrested a suspect in a domestic violence case in which the suspect used a stun gun to assault his 37-year-old estranged wife. Taken into custody last night at approximately 6:15 P.M. was Steve Huang, 36, of San Bruno.
The incident began when the suspect entered a hair salon on the 1500 block of Irving Street, a business that the suspect and his estranged wife own jointly. The suspect stole a decorative statue and assaulted the victim with a stun gun when she protested before fleeing the premises in a silver Acura SUV.
Further investigation led to Huang's location at a residence in San Bruno. He had their ten-year-old son with him. Huang was intending to move, possibly out of the country, without letting his estranged wife know. A search warrant was secured, resulting in the seizure of two loaded handguns and a loaded shotgun.
Huang remains in custody on charges that include domestic violence, assault, child endangerment, possession of loaded firearms, and burglary.
The apprehension of Huang was due to the timely efforts of the Domestic Violence Response team. The investigative team gratefully acknowledges the assistance of detective Kevin McMullan of the San Bruno Police Department.
