A California woman was killed Monday in a brutal attack by a man who used an electric scooter as his weapon, police said.

Rosa Elena Hernandez, a 63-year-old from Long Beach, was attacked around 12:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

Officials responding to reports of "an assault with a deadly weapon" found Hernandez "with significant injuries to her upper torso," and determined she died at the scene.

Investigators believe the man assaulted the victim, then used a motorized scooter as a weapon. Authorities have not said if the suspect had any connection to the woman.

"I never heard of anything like this either," a neighbor told KTTV. "We've been living here for years, since '93, and this is the first time something like this has happened."

That would really suck. Those scooters do not have the clearance to accommodate a person under them. Assuming he used to scooter to run her over. I can't imagine he picked it up and used it as a weapon because they're so dang heavy. What a horrible way to go a man. I wonder why he has not been publicly named. I guess he will be as soon as they've formally charged him.
