What is Santa Ana coming to? The increase in violence reached a new low on Wednesday night as two teenagers pummeled a 73-year-old man in the face and robbed him at around 7:40 pm as the man was standing on a sidewalk at the 400 block of North Minter Street, near E. 4th Street, which is on the periphery of the hipster part of Santa Ana called the East End, according to the O.C. Register.
The creepy teens approached the elderly man and engaged him in conversation, according to the SAPD, before one of them punched him in the face and ripped a gold chain off his neck. Nothing else was taken except perhaps for the man’s dignity.
The attackers fled, one on foot and the other on a bike, going west on Civic Center Drive. There is a chance that their cowardly attack was caught on video, which the SAPD detectives are trying to access.
Good luck finding the suspects, who are described as being between 16 and 18 years of age. One of them was in a hoodie and shorts. The other one was wearing a baseball cap, t-shirt and dark pants.
If you might know who these dangerous jerks are please report them to the SAPD at 714-834-4211.
