A Daly City man punched and bit his parents before threatening to kill them and burn down their home because they wouldn’t let him see their pet cat which was recovering from surgery, according to prosecutors.
Yevgeniy Bolshakov, 26, lived with his parents but had been away when he returned to the apartment Nov. 30 and asked to see the animal, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
The parents, ages 64 and 52, refused and Bolshakov punched his father several times in the head, ripped a chunk of flesh out of the man’s arm with his teeth and bit him on the elbow and chin, Wagstaffe aid.
When Bolshakov’s mother tried to intervene, he reportedly hit her several times on the head and bit the top of her right hand. He then allegedly threatened to kill them and burn their house down before police arrived.
Prosecutors charged Bolshakov with mayhem and two counts each of felony assault and making felony threats. At his initial arraignment yesterday, Bolshakov asked for a court-appointed attorney and pleaded not guilty to all the charges. Bail was set at $100,000 and he returns to court Feb. 16 for a preliminary hearing with a 90 minute estimate. Judge Mark Forcum also imposed a no-contact order.
