L.A.'s football dreams; disturbing attacks in Orange County

Ktlaupdate Here are a couple of the stories that KTLA News reporters are working on for tonight:

Football dreams: The National Football League hasn't played in Los Angeles since 1994. Since then there have been proposals to rebuild the Coliseum and build new stadiums on land around Dodger Stadium, Carson, Hollywood Park, Anaheim, the Rose Bowl, and downtown L.A. near Staples Center. Now, the city of Industry has given final approval to billionaire developer Ed Roski's plan to build a 75,000 seat stadium on leased, city-owned land. Roski's challenge now may be finding an NFL team willing to move there. Eight NFL franchise teams reportedly are in contention.

Orange County attacks: A man who targeted a grandmother in a home-invasion robbery in Stanton may have committed five other home robberies in Orange County over the last two months or so. The man entered a house in the 7300 block of Cerritos Avenue through a garage door apparently left open and pointed a chrome-plated handgun at the head of a 58-year-old woman, grabbed her by the hair and pushed her into a rear bedroom.
