Two Local News Stories

An 83 year old man was beaten mercilessly by a 300 pound, 33 year old road rager who is now a guest of the Placer County Sheriff about a mile from me. A witness became a second victim when he stepped in to aid the elderly gentleman.
ROCKLIN (CBS13) – An elderly man was the victim of a beating in what Rocklin police are calling a road rage rampage.
“This guy was kicking an 80-year-old man in his own garage,” said a neighbor and witness, who wished to remain anonymous.

Around 10 a.m. Saturday, Rocklin police responded to the 6000 block of Bridal Veil Drive, where they discovered an 83-year-old man suffering significant injuries from an assault in his garage.

A neighbor, who witnessed the battery, was also injured when he tried to intervene.

“He weighed 300 pounds. He beat him half to death,” said the man.

Police say 33-year-old Zubin Bogdanoff followed the victim for nearly a half mile to his home, and then attacked the man.

According to witnesses, Bogdanoff fled the scene in his vehicle and attempted to run over a neighbor that was calling police.

Bogdanoff was quickly apprehended after a brief search of the area. He was booked into Placer County Jail on charges of assault, burglary, battery, and felony abuse of an elder.
An Eldercare worker in Loomis served up some wild mushroom soup and now two are dead, four are hospitalized including the care worker. Placer County Sheriff's deputies say it was an accident, but California Dept. of Social Services are investigating further. I'm reminded of The Beguiled.

SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — Authorities say two residents of a Northern California assisted living facility have died and four others are hospitalized after eating soup with wild mushrooms.

Placer County sheriff’s officials say that 86-year-old Barbara Lopes and 73-year-old Teresa Olesniewicz — residents of Gold Age Villa, an elderly care home in Loomis — died after eating the soup that had been prepared by a caregiver at the facility.

Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Reed says the caregiver who prepared the soup was among the six people sickened. The conditions of the four people hospitalized were not immediately known, and their names have not been released.
