A 14-year-old boy charged with brutally beating an 87-year-old woman at a senior housing facility was arrested following a dayslong search in California, authorities said.
The assault occurred during an apparent robbery at the Camelot Independent Living complex in the Riverside County city of Hemet, police said.
“It’s an 87-year-old victim minding her own business in the safety of her own home,” police Lt. Dean Evans told the Riverside Press-Enterprise.
The woman remained hospitalized Friday in critical but stable condition, police said.
Investigators said it appeared she was not specifically targeted. No further details were released about the attack.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested on April 17, the day of the attack. He was being held without bail at Southwest Juvenile Hall.
Both were charged earlier this week with burglary, torture, elder abuse and assault with a deadly weapon, said John Hall, a spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney’s office.
This poor woman! These lil wannabe thugs deserve whatever punishment they get for sure.
