Teen sought in Arroyo Rd. elder assault case

Livermore police are looking for a 13-year-old boy who they say assaulted an elderly woman earlier this week.

Police say an 89-year-old woman was walking along the Arroyo Mocho Creek path at 3:42 Tuesday afternoon, when the boy approached her near Arroyo Rd and L St.

The teen started walking with the woman, engaging conversation with her, and telling her that his name was Cameron and that he was in 7th grade, according to a police statement.

Police say the suspect then told the victim he wanted to show her something off the path. The woman followed the boy off the path, at which time he allegedly hit her in the head with an unknown object. The woman fell to the ground and the boy continued to hit her on the head once she was on the ground, according to police.

A person passing by heard the woman screaming for help, and the boy took off on a scooter when the passerby came to help the woman. The police statement says the victim sustained a significant head injury and was treated and released from the hospital following an overnight stay.

Investigators are looking for a white male juvenile, about 13 years of age, with brown wavy short hair and a thin build. He was wearing tan shorts and a gray or blue shirt. Officers ask you to contact the LPD with any information.
