ROSEVILLE, CA - A 79-year-old Roseville man was taken to the hospital Tuesday after being assaulted by five youths in front of his home on the 900 block of Douglas Boulevard, say police.
Dee Dee Gunther of the Roseville Police Dept. said the man went outside of his home around 12:26 a.m. to ask a group of noisy kids to move along, when the youths charged him, knocked him down and began hitting and kicking him.
Don Viescas, Sr.'s son was working on his truck, just a few feet away, and witnessed the attack.
"He just said keep it down, take it down the street, just take it somewhere else," the victim's son Don Viescas, Jr. said. "They were on my dad and they all got a punch in. They all got a kick in."
He described what one teen did with a river rock from the front yard.
