Transient Violently Attacks Woman At 76 Gas Station
This morning at 7:30am a mother of 6 was working at this 76 on March Lane and I-5. A homeless transient was outside harassing customers so she started calling 9-1-1 on her cell phone. The transient then broke through the locked doors by throwing his body against the glass until he breached the store. According to the woman he then began to beat her, smashing her head on the ground repeatedly until a woman and some construction workers rushed in to save her. The transient then ran off with the cell phone and was arrested nearby. The worker who was attacked is now in the hospital awaiting another CAT Scan as bleeding has been found in her skull.
