MURRIETA – For 14 years, Santa and his helpers sprinkled Christmas goodwill and holiday magic in Murrieta neighborhoods with nary a “bah humbug” or a Grinchy sneer — until Wednesday.
Two teenage volunteers dressed as Rudolph and Frosty said they were roughed up while dancing and singing for an audience of 300. Their names were not released. Rudolph suffered an injured back and neck, while Frosty has a sprained wrist.
Murrieta police are asking for the public’s help in what is dubbed the “Rudolph Caper.”
