CRESTLINE, Calif. (VVNG.com) A 34-year-old Crestline man is under arrest after he brutally assaulted an elderly man.
On June 17, 2017, deputies from the Twin Peaks Station responded to a business in the 24000 block of Lake Drive in Crestline, regarding an assault incident.
According to authorities, employees at Goodwin’s Market called 911 to report an assault on a 75-year-old man.
The suspect, Matthew Adam Kiser was inside the market when the elderly asked him to leave and was told he was trespassing.

Deputies quickly responded to the call and contacted Kiser as he was walking away from the store.
