A 30-year-old man free on bail after an assault case earlier this month has been arrested on suspicion of killing an elderly man and assaulting another man.

David Abbott of Anaheim was accused of attacking a man about noon in the 1300 block of Devonshire Road. The victim suffered minor injuries and was not hospitalized, said Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer.

About 20 minutes later near Falmouth and Catalpa avenues, Abbot allegedly attacked a 70-year-old man, who was then transported to a hospital, where he later died, Carringer said.

The victim’s name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Abbot was booked on a murder and assault charges. On May 20, Abbot had been released from jail after posting $100,000 bail in a May 15 assault case involving a deadly weapon.
