MANTECA, Calif. (KCRA) — A man and a teenager were arrested in connection with the attack of a 71-year-old man who was walking around a Manteca park, police said Wednesday.
Tyrone McAllister, 18, and a 16-year-old boy were taken into custody. Both were arrested on charges of attempted robbery, elder abuse and assault with a deadly weapon, according to the police department.
McAllister is the son of Union City Police Chief Darryl McAllister, KCRA confirmed with Manteca police. The family is “devastated” by the incident, and are estranged from Tyrone McAllister, according to the Manteca Police Department.
My buddy Woody used to live in Manteca and I occasionally passed through it going back and forth to work. It’s a fairly nice town, mostly commuters that traveled back and forth to the Bay Area.
It sure doesn’t seem like something like this would happen there.
