Two Arrested After Beating a Crossing Guard

Jose Hernandez, 27, and Vanessa Del Pilar Martinez, 20, are in custody for allegedly beating a 59-year-old female crossing guard and stealing her stop sign and whistle. According to sheriff's investigators, the two suspects drove up to the intersection at about 2pm and began to turn east on Firestone blvd. from north bound Hooper ave. The crossing guard raised her stop sign higher in the air and told the suspects, "You have to stop, the children come first." According to witnesses Hernandez yelled at the crossing guard that he was not stopping. As he yelled, Martinez got out of the passenger side of the car and began hitting the crossing guard with her fists, knocking her to the ground. Hernandez then got out of his car went up to the victim and stole her stop sign while Martinez forcibly took the lanyard holding the whistle and work i.d. Several witnesses took down the license plate number and deputies were able to trace the vehicle to the residence and locate the two suspects.
