A wild ride ends at Disneyland

Here’s the top of a story on a Monrovia man who terrorized the San Gabriel Valley for a few hours last week before spending his last moments of freedom at Disneyland.

An earlier version is here.


A Monrovia man’s wild ride through the San Gabriel Valley, which authorities suspect included carjackings, home invasions and an attempted murder, ended at “The Happiest Place on Earth,” authorities said Tuesday.
Anthony Hislar, 27, of Monrovia, was booked on suspicion of dozens of crimes including two carjackings and one attempted murder after spending the day at Disneyland with two acquaintances he met on MySpace, officials said.
“This man was just a one-man crime spree,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Det. Randy Rue-Las said. “Just out of control.”
