What's with old men taking a walk becoming victims of crime these days? First, early this morning around 1:45 am., a call came into the Lancaster Sheriff's Department regarding a pedestrian vs. vehicle accident after a passerby saw a body laying in the street at 13th Street East and Avenue K. When police arrived, they found a local transient in his 60's with an arrow through his chest.

News came yesterday of a 70-year-old man was found stabbed and laying in the street on the 7400 block of Romaine Street in Hollywood Sunday night. He later died at the hospital.
