California Man Arrested After Randomly Punching Two Elderly Victims and Posing for Photo


A California man randomly punched two elderly victims in separate attacks, and casually posed for a picture following one of the incidents, authorities said.

In the first attack, Hosteter allegedly punched someone on San Tomas Aquino Road before posing for a photo the victim took of him before he fled the scene, police said.

Police released the image on social media in hopes of identifying the suspect, but they didn’t track him down until he allegedly attacked again.

A 75-year-old man was taking a walk near Inwood Drive and Elam Avenue when Hosteter allegedly punched him in the face, CPD said.

Officers “immediately” began searching for the suspect and contacted his parents the next morning.

“With their assistance, Hosteter exited his residence and was arrested without further incident,” CPD announced.

While being booked into Santa Clara County Jail on two counts of elder abuse, Hosteter earned an extra charge of battery on an officer for allegedly kicking one.

“We cannot thank our community enough for their partnership in incidents like these. We can assure you that our officers are working diligently to investigate these incidents to the full extent,” police said.
