Pakistani-American Passes away after Alleged Assault in Sacramento

Mohammad Ali Khan, a Pakistani-American living in Sacramento, California, succumbed to injuries he received after an alleged assault on August 27.
Sacramento police officers were called to the scene after Khan who is said to be in his 30s was found bleeding and in need of medical attention. A press release by the police department asked potential witnesses to help in the assault investigations.
“Preliminary information obtained through the investigation suggests that the victim’s injuries were possibly caused by a physical assault,” stated the press release.
An update in a Facebook post by Khan’s close friend Juanita Mancillas confirmed he had succumbed to his injuries and passed away.
Shedding more light on the incident of that night, Mancillas wrote he was attending her sister’s birthday in downtown Sacramento. He left the party at 1:40am and “sometime between 1:40am and 2:15 am he either fell or was assaulted. His phone, keys and wallet were taken. There was still a crowd of people around at the time that this happened.”
Khan’s mother who was supposed to visit him in October “had to take an emergency 26 hour flight from Pakistan yesterday only to say goodbye to her son who she loves so fiercely,” writes Mancillas.
The police department states no motive has yet been established and that they “are requesting the public’s assistance in any information they may have related to the incident.” The Express Tribune
