Red Bluff, CA (The Weekly Vice) - Russell Rodgers, a 32-year-old California man was jailed Monday after he allegedly attacked a 74-year-old man inside a Burger King bathroom simply because the victim was elderly.
According to Red Bluff Police, 74-year-old Bill Bayless was using the restroom inside a Red Bluff area Burger King when Rodgers launched an assault on him simply because of his age.
Police say Rodgers slammed the victim in the face with the door, knocking him to the ground. When the victim tried to get up, Rodgers hit him again with the door, saying "That is what I do to old people."
Before leaving the restroom, Rodgers allegedly told the victim "I knocked you down because you are old."
Rodgers was located a few hours later when he contacted the Tehama County Sheriff's Office to see why police were looking for him.
Deputies convinced Rodgers to meet them at a local business where he was immediately taken into custody. Investigators say they are familiar with Rodgers, who lives in an encampment along the Sacramento River near the Antelope Blvd Bridge.
"We've had several reports of verbal and physical disturbances with a subject matching his description," said Sgt. Michael Graham."
Rodgers was booked into jail and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse.
