Deputy DA Violently Beaten While Jogging In Newport Beach

NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA.com) – A San Bernardino County prosecutor in the midst of a gang-murder trial was bloodied and beaten into unconsciousness Thursday while on a morning jog in Newport Beach.

Investigators are working to determine whether the assault, which occurred around 6 a.m. at Bob Henry Park near East 16th Street and Dover Drive, was related to her job.

According to Newport Beach police, the woman was running along 16th Street when the suspect approached her from behind and attacked her.

Following the attack, the bloodied victim walked into Newport Workout, a gym located in the 700 block of Dover Drive.

“Not a little blood, covered in blood, like a bucket of blood was poured over her,” said Ron Cary, a trainer at the gym.

Cary said the victim was barely able to walk.

“She was in shock, she was frantic, she was all over the place, rambling,” Cary added.

According to Cary, the victim told police investigators that she is a deputy DA involved in a murder trial in the Inland Empire.

“She said, ‘I’m in the middle of a murder trial, I’m on a murder trial, and I was attacked from behind,’” Cary said.

Christopher Lee, a spokesman for the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, confirmed that “a member of our office was involved in an incident this morning, which is currently under investigation”, but declined to
comment further.

Detectives are investigating whether the trial is reportedly working on is linked to the attack. Police confirmed to CBS2 she was not sexually assaulted or robbed during the incident. She was taken to a hospital. Her condition was not confirmed.

Another witness reported seeing a man on a bike following the woman prior to the attack. Police, however, did not immediately release a description of the suspect.

  1. “Another witness reported seeing a man on a bike following the woman prior to the attack. Police, however, did not immediately release a description of the suspect.”

    Can’t imagine why.

    1. Well, if we know the color of the defendant she prosecuting, we can pretty well guess the color of the person who assaulted her. Since she was neither robbed or raped, we can safely assume that this attack was intended to intimidate her, any other prosecutor who steps up to replace her and the state’s witnesses. I hope the witnesses are under close protection.

    2. How can such a thing happen, didn’t she have girl power?

      1. roughman998 says:

        Lame.

      2. Girl power?? Bet she is an anti-2nd amendment individual. IF this was connected to the trial maybe those L.A. prosecutors should be trained and carry firearms. This might become a trend with the gang bangers.

        Prosecutors could become targets like police officers. Maybe then you sill see the death penalty make a come back. I am sure IF politicians were being beaten and killed the death penalty would have never been back doored or taken off the table.

    3. David Koob says:

      CBS News: “Someone did something today. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police.”

      1. No, ‘somebody ALLEGEDLY did something’

    4. Jack Frost says:

      It is amazing how very little significant information can be found in SOME “news articles”, in particular those that MIGHT paint a picture out of sync with the agenda of our Progressive Taliban.

  2. See if we can guess: He was black and she was white?

    1. John Oakman says:

      Does cbs Really think they are Hiding the Identity of these thugs by Not giving a description? Pssst, when they do that then we All Know.

  3. Well then perhaps they would both be people of Color, yes?

    1. Rick Blaine says:

      White is the absence of color.

      1. White is pure, anything from grey to black is considered an ugly color, unless you’re driving a vehicle of those colors.

      2. Jay Barbieri says:

        White is all colors together.

      3. Rico Soiree says:

        Black is the absence of color…and, apparently, civility.

      4. White is all colors you imbecile.

      5. Lee Jenkins says:

        That’s funny, Jarvis. If you mix red, green, yellow,brown, blue paint together, you sure don’t get white

    2. Colors
      In a world of amazing color,
      a palette we do not lack.
      Why does life come down to,
      the choice of white and black?
      All the glorious shades,
      in the background of our life.
      Hatred always survives,
      no matter who holds the knife.
      This idiocy about color,
      the sad need to hate.
      Leaves the soulless person,
      to a terrible, lonely fate.
      Let it go, let’s move on,
      to things that really matter.
      Stop this petty division,
      as the Elites get even fatter.

  4. Brad Kaplan says:

    I’m sure they have a good reason for not telling us about the description of the suspect…

  5. Richard Frey says:

    We don’t know if the Perp was white or Black or in between, so…….don’t ask the Public for help locating this guy…..I guess it was a guy or something in between. We don’t know if the Prosecutor was Black or White or something in between, so this PC baloney really makes the Cops Job a lot Harder…..I’m guessing again but Ill bet the Murder trial involved a Black Gang member? or a Mexican cartel member? or a Muslim BLM Member????…..So now, we know an “Event” occurred on a known Dangerous Jogging Trail !!!….So what’s the Point of this piece? Should we not Jog any longer, should we carry a concealed weapon?….Maybe we should just stay at home and NOT watch the News………

  6. Joe Buck says:

    They’re real concerned about finding the attacker. Great description.

  7. Too bad we need to waste time and money trying these animals.

  8. Doug Oritz says:

    From the description I will let you know if I see the suspect “a man on a bike”.

    1. My doctor rides a bike and I know an embalmer who rides a bike. Maybe it was the embalmer guy trying to drum up some business.

  9. Surely it was a liberal judge. All good!

  10. cal dumps illegals on my state…..why should I care?

  11. Stu Pedasso says:

    Sounds about right. Those gang bangers are all a bunch of cowards and that’s why they belong to a gang in the first place. One on one they are pretty brave when attacking an unarmed lone female. Another great argument of concealed carry. DA’s can legally carry in California and I’ll bet that lady starts to take advantage of that once she recovers. You go girl!

  12. Gi Gene says:

    The barrel is 2 and 1/2 inches long. The American manufacturer is Diamond Back. It a 9 MM it holds 7 shots. Every man and woman should own one. It fits into any pocket or purse, you don’t really need a holster. Crime would go down.

  13. Lets hope she completely recovers and gets to see the perp sent to prison for life

  14. A little common sense, she’s prosecuting these dirtbags and goes jogging alone? Unarmed?

    1. Dan Roth says:

      Most people would not expect to get jumped and beaten in Newport Beach in daylight. Maybe it is on camera or someone saw it happen. The description is not very helpful. Too politically correct to be of much use. When will they get over that nonsense?

  15. Rick Blaine says:

    You don’t have to be a prosecutor on a big trial to be attacked at random in California. Probably not connected.

  16. Lilith Whyte says:

    Descriptions are not provided because ignorant fascists use stats to point out that certain races commit a disproportionate amount of crime. Get it?

  17. glad I live near Baltimore..no crime here. Sorry California..you need to elect democrats ..

  18. Jon Lewis says:

    Did she have any dirt on the Clintons?

    1. No, Hillary double taps all her kills. No messy witnesses.

  19. Democrats will stop at nothing. Likely had the antifa bigots staking her.

    The victim is probably a Republican.

  20. The deputy DA sounds unappreciative of the diversity that was so generously shared with her in the park. She must be a racist.

    The only question of course is whether the assailant was a spic or a nog.

  21. Commiefornia dumbocrats call for bike control in 3… 2… 1…

  22. Grizz Mann says:

    An Antifa protest? Maybe BLM?

  23. Too bad she didn’t have a gun and could just shoot them dead.

  24. Some times a real job is a lot safer then a Government pension.

  25. Antifa and BLM: Assuring that America remains a Republican nation and becomes even more so!

  26. “Anti-racists” say there’s a RACE problem. They say it’ll be solved when non-Whites pour into ALL & ONLY White nations and “assimilate” to get a brown mixture.

    They say only White nations have this RACE problem; they say non-White nations are fine.

    If I object to my own genocide these “anti-racists” say I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they’re anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  27. This is what being soft on criminals gets you. Perhaps Cali should vote in more Dems who bend over for criminals.

  28. Poppy Cronin says:

    These Amish gangs are savages, brutal beyond compare.

  29. Poppy Cronin says:

    This is why I take my gun with me when I go jogging.

  30. Likely a liberal who supports sanctuary for illegal aliens. Why would I care?

  31. My money’s on the usual white Amish riff-raff.

  32. Oh my God I just saw someone I believe to be a man. It’s him!

  33. Rob Lynn says:

    Duterte knows how to handle these animals.

  34. phxfreddyii says:

    She should be carrying concealed.

  35. The MAIN tool of ‘journalists’ is the English language. This from last paragraph:
    “Detectives are investigating whether the trial is reportedly working on is linked to the attack.”

  36. It could not be for doing her job. Must be a coincidence.

  37. James Tabone says:

    This is California – a refuge for gangsters and terrorists from Mexico and beyond.

  38. ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

  39. Gangs should be treated and charged as terrorist if they commit a violent felony. But this would a shame if they catch the guy and he is an illegal who was put back on the street because they wouldn’t had him over to ICE

  40. Cops, prosecutors DA’s and judges are some of the biggest crooks we have, i’m surprised more aren’t attacked and killed

  41. The police were there, they just pulled back a few minutes to put on their riot gear.

  42. mjazzguitar says:

    Attacks like this are common where the cartels are in power.
    Why was it the policy of the Barack administration to allow illegals with criminal records and a history of violence to remain in the United States?
    Why put America’s citizens in danger like that?

  43. If Obama had a son , he would look like the attacker

  44. Chuck Holz says:

    Odds are, that the Attacker was a Democrat and voted for Hillary or Sanders.

  45. I’m sure this is one of Kamala Harris’s favorite’s, a misunderstood illegal gang banger. What a zoo CA has become.

  46. caffeineator says:

    Bikes don’t kill. People kill.

  47. Mike Stein says:

    This is why the politicians don’t mention the gangs. This is why Kapernick and others worship the gang culture. They are all afraid. And also stars can sell a few jerseys too.

  48. Ah, drug cartel types from south of the border. In short, friends of Obama the worst president in US history!

  49. Had to be california. Only in this State do the gangs of blacks and mexicans actually run the communities with violence and threats of violence. These gang members even have the balls to go on camera with the national Geographic teams to brag about their guns and drugs and their ability to intimidate the police and keep them from some areas of the city. This is the only place we have ever seen this type of dangerous behavior and attitude.The prisons are slam full of mexican gang members, black gang members and actual mexican mafia[illegals here in the US] Really a sad situation for all decent people trying to live in this type of environment

  50. Yet another upvote for concealed carry. Of course, we are talking about the Cereal State* aren’t we? People carrying guns? Horrors! Think of the children! I’m sure that it’s a coincidence that she’s prosecuting some gang bangers and then was attacked in broad daylight and not raped or robbed. What was the description of the suspect on the bicycle following her? Type of bike, hair style, and color, facial hair, type and color(s) of clothing, skin color; oh, that’s right, there wasn’t one. Good luck catching her assailant, but at least no one was offended.
    (*Full of fruits, nuts, and flakes)

  51. So this is how our country ends. The bad guys are too powerful for our laws to be enforced, either with too much money and power, as with the Clintons, or with violence, as with organized gangs and drug cartels. The result will be anarchy following a police state in a futile attempt to staunch our bleeding. The Wild West of the 1800’s wasn’t as wild as our country will soon be.

  52. Anone Amouse says:

    This is 2017 California. My bet is the perp wasn’t black but Hispanic and the gang is made up of illegals. But then again Californians….you reap what you sow

  53. Doc Mac says:

    When Mayors of cities order the police to stand-down to allow the mob who supports their shared political beliefs to beat others who don’t, this is what results. They have set a precedent of mob-rule. Unfortunately for them, they assumed it would only be used when and where they like the message of the mob or want to silence opposing messages, but people willing to join a mob and deny others their Rights will not stop at shutting-down legally permitted events, they will use the mob (gang) to try to get anything they want. Teach a mob that breaking the law is OK sometimes, that intimidation and violence are OK sometimes, and that these are valid methods for silencing opposition; and this is what you get. Until they are taught that violence, intimidation, breaking the law, and mob rule are always unacceptable and will be stopped and punished by those paid to keep the peace with no exceptions, regardless of political beliefs, this will continue to happen and become more extreme. Beatings and bottles of urine today, murders and bullets tomorrow.

  54. In other news, Los Angeles gets the city they have always dreamed of.

  55. I have absolutely Zero pity for lawyers.

  56. Troy Dynes says:

    Just a minor tussle with some dreamers.

  57. tngilmer says:

    Welcome to Mexifornia.

  58. Peter York says:

    “Your honor, the prosecution rests.”

  59. Bill Redd says:

    Keep them coming. No borders. Freedom for people color. Open california to everyone. Impeach the President. Eliminate free speech for anyone opposed to our ideas!!!!!!!!!

  60. Jack Inmanz says:

    Be on the lookout for a short, tattooed-up angry little “Latino”. Oh, wait. This is LA. Never mind.

  61. Sig Ma says:

    I thought “strong, independent women” could take care of themselves.

  62. Welcome to life controlled by the leftist agenda. We all must join the utopian cocoon where everything is gray and moral equivalency is king. You don’t need to know the race of the perp. Perps, thugs, terrorists, pedophiles and corrupt democrats need to be protected because they vote for democrats and and if we are nice to them they will stop being bad people.

  63. Jeff Stone says:

    Didn’t release a description of the suspect, hmmm…I wonder why.
    If they released a description, possible they could catch him???
