Neighbors’ surveillance video showed a man leaving the 92-year-old’s home after the alleged attack.

Deputies say the woman’s caregiver walked in on the attack, startling the man, who immediately left. That caregiver called 911 and also took a photo of the man as he fled, helping deputies with a specific description of him

After an intense search seeking help from the public, deputies located Coose Wednesday evening.

“Something like this, once we put it out we got a massive, massive response,” San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Deputy Alan Sanchez said.

In the hours before the arrest, neighbors described the heartbreak, learning about the heinous attack. The 92-year old also suffers from dementia.

“Oh my gosh,” neighbor Karen Schenone said. “How somebody could do that, to anybody, but especially to a helpless 92-year-old woman.”

“I’m appalled,” neighbor Richard Thomson said. “The lowest form is someone that’s going to attack the elderly.”

Outrage over an attack on a 92-year-old woman inside what should be the safety of her own home. Now relief that the suspect is under arrest.

The 92-year-old woman is being treated in a hospital for her injuries.

Coose is being held on more than $1,000,000 bail. He’s due in court Thursday at 1:30 p.m.

      Only an uneducated, low-life, Alt Right person would make such a statement. Everything you said is false. YOU are a part of the current problems in the U.S.
