LONG BEACH (CBSLA) – A person of interest was arrested after 63-year-old Rosa Manjarrez De Hernandez was beaten and killed in Long Beach by a man who assaulted her using a rental scooter Monday afternoon, authorities said.

Officers responded about 12:30 p.m. to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon in the 6400 block of North Obispo Avenue, according to Long Beach Police spokesperson Shaunna Dandoy.

Rosa Manjarrez De Hernandez was beaten and killed in Long Beach by a man who assaulted her using a rental scooter .

Manjarrez De Hernandez was walking eastbound towards Obispo and 64th Street when a man ran up and began assaulting her, Dandoy said.

A bystander tried to intervene, at which point the suspect grabbed a scooter and used it to continue attacking Manjarrez De Hernandez.

Fire officials pronounced Manjarrez De Hernandez dead at the scene.

Abel Angulo, a relative of Manjarrez De Hernandez, told CBSLA’s Rachel Kim that she had walked over to their house to drop off a gift for his mom but when no one answered, Manjarrez De Hernandez started to walk away. As she walked down the street, that’s when the attack happened.

“My mom broke down in tears because we saw her on Saturday because she came for a party of ours,” said Angulo.

Neighbor Robin Fagan says she saw Manjarrez De Hernandez on the grass when she came home from work. She told CBSLA that police took their security video, which caught the attack.

“They saw him socking on her, pushed her down, kicking on her, and then she fell down. And then he went and got the scooter and started beating her on the head with the scooter,” recalled Fagan.

The scooter was described as a Bird electric rental scooter.

In a statement released to CBSLA, a Bird spokeperson said: “We are deeply saddened by this act of violence and our hearts and thoughts go out to the victim and her family. We will work with local law enforcement to help with the investigation into this tragedy.”

Homicide detectives were investigating the fatal assault.

  1. When spotting the feral in the open, keep your eyes on it at all times.
    If the feral approaches you, hand on your weapon and evade safe;y if possible.
    If the feral is within 25 feet, SHOOT TO KILL.

    suspect – described as a black man –complete description would include–violence prone,poor impulse control,low IQ,prior criminal behavior,released due to “prison reform” and the victim was white–and she had it coming–just waiting to see if those blanks will be filled in

    The earth is filled with violence, (suicide bombings, vehicular killings, whole villages wiped out, people slaughtered, burned), and many men are wicked, (murderers, thieves, rapists, kidnappers, arsonists), and in their heart they have evil continually, the earth is corrupt and it seems like disaster is coming…. wait… this sounds familiar….

    Why do they do things like this?

    1. for the same reason a lion kills and eats a gazelle, it’s in their nature, i.e. DNA. If you want more examples google colin flaherty and look at liveleak or worldstar or the thousands of videos on youtube before they are banned as racist.
