Third Suspect Arrested in Beating of 87-Year-Old Man on Walk Near Rose Bowl

The senior suffered head injuries after the attack on a walking route near the Rose Bowl stadium

A third person was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder Tuesday night in connection with the beating of an 87-year-old man during a robbery near the Rose Bowl.

The victim was out for a morning walk March 27 when he was attacked by at least three people near the famous football stadium in Pasadena.

On Tuesday, a 19-year-old Rowland Heights residents turned himself in to Pasadena police. Two other 19-year-old men surrendered earlier this week and were booked on suspicion of attempted murder, robbery and elder abuse.

The victim was hospitalized in critical condition after the attackers confronted him on a popular recreational walking route on West Drive, north of Salvia Canyon Road. He suffered head injuries and was robbed of a pouch that police said contained personal information.

Police reviewed surveillance video as part of the investigation that showed three men and a woman in their teens and 20s at a Pasadena service station attempting to use the victim's credit card shortly after the attack, officials said. It was not clear whether the woman is still sought.
