Two brothers have been arrested on suspicion of attacking an 83-year-old woman who was sitting at a bus stop in Orange County.
The brothers had been drinking when they saw the woman sitting on a bus bench. She refused their offers to buy her dinner and repeatedly asked to be left alone. One of the men put his arm around her and when she pushed him away she was punched several times, leaving her with bruises and an injury to her eye. A passing motorist witnessed the incident and called police.
Both men were arrested on suspicion of committing battery resulting in serious bodily injury, conspiracy to commit a crime, and elder abuse. Both will be facing serious penalties, including jail time if convicted of all charges.
If you or someone you know has been charged with battery, assault, conspiracy, elder abuse, or any other type of crime, it is important to immediately
