14-Year-Old California Boy Wanted For Nearly Beating Elderly Woman to Death

Hemet, California police issued a wanted poster Thursday for a 14-year-old boy who nearly beat an 87-year-old woman to death.

Raymond Miranda was accused of attempted murder and torture after allegedly brutally attacking and robbing a woman at the Camelot Independent Senior Living Community. At 3 a.m., Miranda reportedly attacked her in her sleep and poured bleach on her body. A 15-year-old boy accompanied him and was arrested immediately after.

The community is gated, so it's unclear how the boys entered the property.

Miranda is believed to be homeless.

Police have taken unusual measures in identifying and tracking the minor because they believe he is a great threat to the area.

The elderly woman was hospitalized and remains in critical condition.
