Man Kicked Officer After Punching Two Elderly Men

A 25-year-old California man is facing charges for allegedly assaulting two elderly people within three weeks, in addition to kicking a police officer during his booking.

According to reports, on May 4 and May 24, a man from Campbell reportedly attacked two elderly men. The first incident allegedly occurred when he walked past an elderly gentleman and reportedly struck him in the stomach with a closed fist. He started to flee on foot, but turned around and faced the alleged victim. The man took a picture of the alleged assailant, and it looked like he struck a pose for the shot before running off.

The authorities were notified, and the alleged victim asserted that the man in the photo was the person who hit him. The police circulated the image to see if anyone in the area recognized him.

The investigation was still ongoing when, on the morning of May 24, a person assumed to be the same suspect was walking down the street and crossed paths with a 75-year-old man. He allegedly randomly punched the man in the face. The man told his family what happened, and they returned to the spot to see if there were any surveillance cameras that might have caught the incident as it occurred.

The family reportedly saw the suspect, who allegedly started fighting with them. When the authorities learned the location of the last place the man was seen, they searched until they found him.

The man, who was reportedly uncooperative, was taken into custody. He was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail and allegedly kicked one of the officers during the process. He is facing preliminary charges of two counts of elder abuse, and one count of battery of an officer.
