Santa Clara man assaults 94-year-old woman

ST. GEORGE – A 19-year-old Santa Clara man was arrested Tuesday on for allegedly breaking into the home of a 94-year-old woman and assaulting her.

Just before 7 p.m. on Tuesday, a 19 year-old male allegedly entered the back door of a trailer on the 1900 West block of 1525 North in St. George and encountered a 94-year-old female.

When she asked what he was doing in her home, the man punched her in the mouth.

The man then tried to leave through a different door and could not open it.  The woman followed in the confusion of what was happening and the man punched her again. He then fled out another door.

The man then ran a couple of blocks and jumped over a fence and into the yard of another residence. The occupants of that residence detained the man, who was intoxicated, until the police arrived and took him into custody.

The man was taken to jail for multiple charges stemming from the assault and trespassing, as well as alcohol related charges.

The 94-year-old female met with officers but refused any medical attention.

    This old lady probably has dementia. If there is a stranger in your home, do you think it’s a good idea to approach him with a dumb look and ask what he’s doing there? Of course not. A gun is a good thing to approach with. Not a dumb question. If someone has the misfortune of breaking into my home, he will suffer the rest of his life with disfiguring facial scars, permanent nerve damage and the lack of a colon, if I’m having a good day.

    Just FYI, it’s that lowlife “EVERETT ALEX CLARK” on the arrests page. That poor woman must have been so frightened. Hooray for the residents who detained the useless buttwipe! I hope some of the other inmates give this human garbage a few good punches in the mouth while he’s there.

    Murat, it sounds like you have a criminal mind and that you don’t respect the elderly. I sure hope the editor will remove your hateful, uneducated comment.
