HEMET – The name “Camelot” is often used to portray “a place or state of utter perfection.” However, such was not the case for an 87-year-old woman who resides at The Camelot retirement home in Hemet.
Police allege that two juveniles, after committing several acts of vandalism nearby, broke into the gated community around 2 a.m. on April 17. They then entered the home and came upon the sleeping victim and beat her to the point where she needed intensive care at the hospital for over a week.
A 15-year-old suspect was arrested the same day of the attack. 14-year-old Raymond Michael Miranda fled to Temecula and was arrested days later at a hotel there. Because Miranda was cited as a danger to the public, his name and photo were made public despite the fact that he is a juvenile.
A police spokesman related that Miranda has had “some contact with with the juvenile justice system.”
