SANTA CLARA, Calif. — A 91-year-old man was attacked with a rock and robbed while visiting his wife's grave at a California cemetery site, authorities said.
In a news release from the Santa Clara Police Department, Capt. Wahid Kazem denounced "an unprovoked and ruthless attack, on one of the most vulnerable members of our society,"
"It's something that he does, almost on a daily basis, fairly religiously. He even brings a lawn chair. Sits by her side. And spends some time there with her," Kazem told KGO.
Kazem said the assailant robbed the victim and fled the scene on foot before riding away on a black mountain bicycle, according to the news release.
The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
