Posted by CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA -  Paul and Ciprian Patrulescu are scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow for attacking an 83-year-old woman.

Paul Grigore Patrulescu, 30, and Ciprian Patrulescu, 31, both of Costa Mesa, are each charged with one felony count of inflicting injury on an elder adult.  Both brothers are out of custody on $50,000 bail. They are scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 28, 2012

According to the Orange County District Attorney’s (OCDA) office on the night of Aug. 18, 2012, the Patrulescu brothers are accused of approaching Jane Doe at a bus bench on Harbor Boulevard in Costa Mesa and asking her to go eat at a restaurant with them. The victim refused their offer and began to scream for help. The defendants are accused of then punching her twice in the face and fleeing the scene on foot.

A witness driving by saw the attack and called the Costa Mesa Police Department (CMPD). CMPD officers, who investigated this case, found the victim lying on the bus bench, bleeding above her left eye with cuts to her nose and face. CMPD officers found the defendants nearby and arrested them.

Deputy District Attorney Heidi Garrel of the Family Protection Unit is prosecuting this case.
