14-year-old arrested in beating of 87-year-old woman

HEMET, Calif. - A 14-year-old boy suspected of beating an 87-year-old woman at a senior housing complex has been arrested in California.

Police tell the Riverside Press-Enterprise that he was arrested Thursday night at a hotel in Temecula  following a search. Police say the arrest warrant alleges attempted murder, burglary and torture.

Another 15-year-old boy was arrested earlier for the April 17 attack. He's being held without bail at a juvenile facility.

The assault occurred during an apparent robbery at the Camelot Independent Living complex in the Riverside County city of Hemet.

Investigators say it appears the victim wasn't specifically targeted.


She's in critical condition.
