Man Arrested in Beating of Grandfather at ATM

Raul Fonseca was hospitalized following the assault at the Bank of America in Temple City

A man suspected of viciously beating up a grandfather at an ATM in Temple City has been arrested.

Raul Fonseca was hospitalized following the attack at the Bank of America on the 9500 block of Las Tunas Drive at around 7 p.m. Saturday.

Temple City resident Eric Khun, 25, was arrested at his home on suspicion of assault after evidence linking him to the assault was uncovered, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said. The investigation is ongoing.

Fonseca, 79, said he was waiting in line when a man started screaming "do you know me" in his face.
He tried to defend himself by swinging at his assailant,  however the situation rapidly escalated.

His attacker easily overpowered him, raining down punches to his face, arms and head, then kicking him as he lay on the floor.

Fonseca blacked out during the beating, and when he came too he was covered in blood. He was surrounded by good Samaritans and paramedics.
