Two Brothers Charged With Beating Up a Woman, 83, at a Bus Stop

Prosecutors allege Paul Grigore Patrulescu, 30, and Ciprian Patrulescu, 31, punched an 83-year-old woman in the face twice at a bus stop in Costa Mesa.

ORANGE COUNTY, CA -- Two brothers are scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow for allegedly attacking an 83-year-old woman at a local bus stop.

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. According to the Orange County district attorney's office, the brothers approached an 83-year-old woman at a bus bench on Harbor Boulevard in Costa Mesa and asked her to go eat at a restaurant with them on the night of Aug. 18. The victim refused their offer and began to scream for help. The brothers are accused of then punching her twice in the face and fleeing the scene on foot, prosecutors said.

A witness driving by saw the attack and called the Costa Mesa Police Department. Officers found the victim lying on the bus bench, bleeding above her left eye with cuts to her nose and face.

Police found the brothers nearby and arrested them in Costa Mesa.

If convicted, the brothers face a maximum sentence of four years in state prison. The men are out of custody on $50,000 bail and scheduled to be arraigned Friday at 8:30 a.m. at the Harbor Justice Center in Newport Beach.
