what a horrible thing to do is to strike your victim on the back of his/her head with a flashlight and not just once but several times. i can only think of only one even more brutal and traumatic way to attack your victim is to hit the back of his/her head with a fleshlight.

If i remember well we had a few news of this kind lately and it is the first time that the casino camera surveillance was used to find that this guy was following the women and they could arrested him in a very short time.
I just don't understand why in the other one the same casino camera was no help or not used to find the robbers.

well for this should get many years of jale!I dont have problem when somebody rob casino without consequence,but when you watch people and attack them except you take money form that,then hope that will get lot of years of jale!
ordinary idiots were caught and it's very good ... I would like to see similar news extensively covered in the media so that burglars will not be tempted to commit a crime .. but people are not very smart and aggressive enough to completely stop such crimes

Good thing they got them this time and really soon. Casino once more. Easy target for the robbers. When i saw though "elderly", i was expecting to see an age much older than 55 At 55 you are not that old
I just finding incredibely odd that throughout all summer every casino related news article had a positive mood and it was mainly business related or was about promotional/jackpot ad type thing - but ever since the fall/winter period started every casino article is about failed robberies and other kind of atrocities. Deeply ironic and sad at the same time.

So, the couple followed and attacked the elderly woman with a flashlight just to steal her purse? What a despicable and cowardly act. Fremont police did a good job apprehending the suspects within 24 hours after the incident.

Elderly citzens are easy targets most of the time - especially for tweakers and drug addicts who are just aiming for their next fix - since they themselves arent hundred percent fit and strong at all anyway...
