Nutella addict punches old man in face

The Burbank Leader reports that a 78-year-old man was attacked after telling a fellow shopper that they had taken quite enough free Nutella from the sample cart.

Writes Alene Tchekmedyian:

Burbank resident Derrick Gharabighi, 24, had snagged several samples when the elderly shopper told him to take just one, said Burbank Police Officer Cindy Guillen.

That's when Gharabighi reportedly punched the man in the face, leaving him to be hospitalized with a one-inch cut and swelling above his eye, Guillen said.

Gharabighi now faces elder abuse charges. [via Arbroath]
