CALIFORNIA — Officers with the Long Beach police department have arrested an alleged assailant after a woman was beaten to death Monday afternoon.
The scene is in the 6400 block of Obispo Avenue.
Local media reports the woman was walking down the street when the unidentified suspect began attacking her. A Good Samaritan was trying to help when the attacker retrieved a ‘Bird’ electric-type scooter from a nearby yard and continued his brutal assault.

NEW: About 4 hours ago this man is suspected of killing a woman with a Bird scooter, hitting her multiple times and leaving her to die in the street. The police just arrested him here at this Circle K an hour ago & I just got security video thanks to the super kind owner. @CBSLA pic.twitter.com/rlaV2frBPn
