Any idea why the victim was targeted? University Ave in East Palo Alto is a common route for people commuting by bicycle between Facebook and Google.

I'm glad these thugs were caught. How terrible to be an elderly person and be attacked like that. I hope the thugs get more than a rap on the knuckles as seems to be typical these days. I'd also like to see their names published.
