The man suspected of attacking a 67-year-old woman in Oceanside last week was arrested on a nearby beach on Sunday. Lt. Taurino Valdovinos said lifeguards and citizens spotted suspect Issac Pettigrew on the sand near the pier at around 7:25 a.m.
Police were summoned to arrest Pettigrew, 31, in the 200 block of The Strand South. He surrendered without a struggle, police said. The suspect allegedly assaulted the elderly woman on Sep. 22. She was knocked out and suffered serious injuries, Valdovinos said.
Oceanside police did not know the motive for the beating.
