A 22-year-old Walla Walla man was jailed after breaking into a retirement apartment and punching a man recovering from a stroke.
Jason H. Beeman was jailed in Walla Walla on Saturday on investigation of robbery, burglary and assault.
Beeman allegedly went to the Applebee’s restaurant and handed a note to an employee demanding money and threatening to kill the employee.
He then allegedly went to the nearby Affinity retirement apartments, 1706 Fairway Drive and tried to get inside. A Walla Walla officer saw Beeman punching a 56-year-old man on the ground who had fallen trying to get away from him, said a news release.
