PASADENA >> A Pasadena man is accused of attacking a parking lot monitor and a woman with a can and a large rock Friday afternoon, police said.
Shawn Jess Adelman, 43, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon following the incident, which took place about 1:45 p.m. in the 1700 block of East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena police Lt. John Luna said.
He was loitering in a parking lot when the monitor, a 47-year-old Altadena man, asked him to move to a safer spot, Luna said.
Adelman struck the attendant with a cane, and threw a large rock at both him and a 61-year-old Pasadena woman who was standing nearby, the lieutenant said.
Police responded and arrested Adelman, Luna said. The parking lot monitor was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries to his elbow and hand. The woman was not hurt.
