GLENDALE — A 39-year-old Glendale man who was already in police custody for another charge was allegedly identified through DNA evidence as the attacker of a 58-year-old woman who was bound and beaten unconscious June 2 inside her apartment, police said Wednesday.
The DNA evidence allegedly matched Lorenzo Ordonez, who was in custody in a downtown Los Angeles jail in connection with a separate Glendale case for assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse, Glendale Police Det. Mike Wenz said.
Police visited the jail and interviewed Ordonez, who allegedly admitted to having tied up the woman, beaten and robbed her. He also told police the attack was random, Wenz added.
