The Orange County Sherriff’s department says a transient brutally attacked a real estate agent in Laguna Nigel.

 

The attack happened as the 55-year-old was accessing a lock box on a home for sale. The man put the real estate agent in a chokehold and punched her until she was knocked unconscious. The suspect fled, but police later identified him as John Glenn, a homeless man who admitted to being under the influence of drugs at the time of the attack. He said he was attempting to break into the home when the real estate agent interrupted him.

 

Glenn was arrested on charges of attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held on $50,000 bail.

 

Under California law, you can be charged with assault with a deadly weapon for any assault that involves use of a deadly weapon or using anything intended to cause great bodily injury. Assault with a deadly weapon can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on three specifics in the case. These items are: the type of weapon used, the severity of the injury, and the protected class of the victim. Attacks on certain individuals, such as firefighters, law enforcement, and federal employees are automatic felonies.
