Redwood City man facing jail for attacking woman with socket wrench
April 03, 2014, 05:00 AM

Anthony Laurentino

A 27-year-old Redwood City man who prosecutors say struck a female pedestrian three times in the back of the head with a socket wrench and demanded money is facing up to a year in jail after pleading no contest to felony attempted robbery.

Anthony Santino Laurentino was not supposed to drink alcohol because of his bipolar medication but his mother said he had been imbibing the night of June 9, 2013, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Laurentino allegedly walked up behind a 17-year-old female walking by herself on Middlefield Road near Main Street around 2:40 a.m. and hit her with the tool. After she fell to the ground bleeding, he reportedly demanded money before another person intervened and he fled.

The girl required multiple staples for her head wounds. Laurentino later called 911 to confess the robbery and was arrested.

Laurentino is free from custody on $50,000 bail and will be sentenced May 16.
