A Northern California man has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and felony elder abuse after he allegedly beat up an 83-year-old man in what police described as a "road rage rampage."

Police said they were called to a home in Rocklin, northeast of Sacramento, just before 10 a.m. after getting a report of a fight.

When they arrived, they found an elderly man in the garage with numerous injuries, police said.

A witness told authorities he tried to stop the fight but was assaulted by the same suspect. A second witness also reported being nearly run over by the suspect, who fled the scene in his car.

Police said the suspect, 33-year-old Zubin Bogandoff, followed the man home and attacked him in his garage.

Bogandoff was booked at Placer County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, felony elder abuse and battery.

The elderly man was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Bogandoff had also been arrested on suspicion of battery four days before the alleged road rage attack. In that case, he went into a grocery store, seemed to be in a rage, and allegedly hit a patron in the store.
