  On December 7th, a civilian was pushed in front of a moving truck by a stranger in Downtown LA. The victim suffered from a collapsed lung and several broken bones, and he was left in critical condition.

  This crime was caught on camera, and the suspect was identified to be Garrett Joseph Boldt. The man had picked up the victims dropped bracelet due to the impact of the push, and continued to walk down the street.  

  He was later charged with a felony count premeditated attempted murder. Boldt was taken into custody shortly after his offense. He was said to be combative and resistant toward arrest, and he had no form of identification. Witnesses of the attack believe he was homeless.

  Boldt was also seen later that afternoon striking a woman at a bus stop on West 1st and South Hill streets. This led to his arrest shortly after the second offense. Both attacks were said to be unwarranted and random.

  In reaction to this, Sarah Cheng (11) stated, “The [victims] were definitely in the wrong place at the wrong time. I hope they gets better and are able to come out of this horrible situation stronger.”

  If Boldt is convicted according to his charges, he could spend maximum life in prison, along with a $1.09 million bail.

  Zoha Syed (11) stated, “It’s good that [Boldt] is off the streets since he won’t be harming people. Hopefully he can compose himself in a safe environment, even if that means prison.”

  The offender is scheduled for another court appearance on the 20th. The Boldt case is still under investigation.
