    Here’s the text from a Fremont Police Department press rlease…

    Incident: Robbery / Assault **UPDATE**
    Case Number: 090309046
    Date/Time: March 14, 2009 11:00 AM
    Suspect Arrested: Jose Antonio Rodriguez Flores, 22yrs, Fremont resident

    At 11:00 this morning an arrest was made in the robbery / assault of an elderly woman that occurred on March 9, 2009. The suspect was arrested without incident while
    leaving his home in Fremont’s Irvington District. The suspect has been interviewed and charged with robbery and felony battery.

    The arrest was the result of a tip from a citizen who saw and recognized the suspect’s photo on the evening news. On behalf of the victim, her family, and the Fremont Police Department we would like to thank all the news agencies that participated in putting out this
    story.

    What a relief that they caught this guy. The story goes online at noon on the 13th and by 11 the next morning he’s in custody. So what motivates a 22 year old guy to beat up a 75 year old lady? Drugs?

    Also nice that his face, full name and where he lives are out there. Nothing like good old fashioned public scorn.

    He kind of looks like that crime reporter for The Argus.
