Santa Ynez Man Strikes Elderly Victim with Baton Attack Followed a Verbal Dispute at Victim's Residence

During the evening hours of January 14th, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputies were called to the 2700 block of Corral de Quati in Los Olivos, regarding a 72-year-old man who had been struck in the leg several times with an expandable baton. The attack followed a disagreement between the elderly victim, who is the landlord of the residence, and 45-year-old Dinu Antofie of Santa Ynez, who was visiting one of the tenants. The two had argued over Antofie smoking inside the residence.

While the argument between the parties was initially only a verbal disagreement, Antofie returned to the residence armed with an expandable baton. He allegedly pushed and struck the elderly victim before shoving him to the ground. Antofie then used the baton to strike the elderly victim at least twice in the leg, leaving welts and marks. Before Antofie left the scene, he threatened to harm the elderly victim if he reported the attack.

In the late evening hours of January 15, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division learned the location of the suspect and Antofie was taken into custody without incident at a Santa Ynez restaurant.

Antofie was booked on $100,000 bail for assault with a deadly weapon, victim intimidation and elderly abuse.
