Elderly Florida Man With Electric Scooter And A Big Knife Attacks Two
An old person on an electric scooter chair is not generally an intimidating thing. They can’t sneek up on you because of the incessant beeping. And if you maintain a brisk pace, they’ll never catch you. Their battery will eventually run out or they will have to stop to let “Lady” climb down from their lap to pee.
But things change when the geezer has a knife and an attitude. Police in Rockledge, Florida say that’s what happened there this week, when a verbal agreement turned into an extremely low-speed chase. Investigators say 74-year-old Daniel Zarelli went into his home following a heated conversation and came back with an 8-inch knife. They say he then followed a woman around for several minutes as the woman tried to get away from him. During the chase, Zarelli allegedly threatened to kill the woman, prompting her to leave the home and call police to the scene. Investigators say Zarelli then went outside the home and chased another man around a parked car on the scooter, still holding the knife. The police report goes on to say that Zarelli slashed a tire on the car.
When police arrived on the scene, they observed Zarelli actively chasing the woman up his driveway on his scooter. He was still holding the knife. During their investigation, officers smelled alcohol on Zarelli’s breath. They also heard Zarelli threaten the man he had been chasing, saying he would kill him “while he had the chance”. Zarelli was apprehended, arrested and placed in the Brevard County Jail. He now faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was also on felony probation. He remains in custody and will appear before the judge next month. Source: ClickOrlando.com
