They sat her on the curb of the street, and she continued to struggle. Paramedics were called to clear the woman of any medical condition but were unable to do so because she resisted them as well.

300 block of Linda Vista Dr., La Cañada. A man saw a truck pull up in front of his neighbor’s house where the driver got out and picked up three bicycles – a woman’s bike, a man’s bike and a child’s bike. The suspect then put the bikes into the back of his pick-up truck. The victim who saw the truck arrive went out into the street to confront the driver. The truck reportedly drove in reverse and the victim grabbed at the bikes, but the vehicle drove forward again before he could grab them. The second victim, the owner of the bikes, had come out of his house shouting at a second suspect who had gotten into the passenger seat of the pick-up. The second victim now stood in front of the truck, and the driver once again put the truck in reverse. He drove backwards toward the first victim and struck him on the right thigh with the rear bumper. At that moment, the second victim was able to retrieve one bike from the bed of the pick-up. The truck then sped away. The first victim said he felt afraid for his life and that being struck by the vehicle seemed to be intentional on the driver’s part. He declined medical attention.
