Abbott was taken into custody after the deadly incident, police say. About 20 minutes before Abbott targeted the 70-year-old man, police say Abbott also beat a 60-year-old man at random and unprovoked. The 60-year-old victim suffered minor injuries, police say.

Prior to Monday's two incidents, Abbott was out of jail for his May 15 arrest for assault with a deadly weapon. Abbott is now in Anaheim Jail on a $2 million bail.

Officials have not released the identities of the elderly man and the attack suspect.
