Back page: Man punches 78-year-old over waffle samples

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — A 24-year-old man has been charged with elder abuse after authorities say he punched a 78-year-old man over free Nutella waffle samples at a Los Angeles-area Costco store. Prosecutors say he was charged Tuesday. He pleaded not guilty in an afternoon court appearance. He is being held on $50,000 bail, and he faces a maximum sentence of 11 years in prison if convicted. The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office says he was hoarding samples of the waffles at the Burbank Costco on Sunday morning when the 78-year-old told him to take just one. Prosecutors say the younger man then punched the older man in the face. Police say the senior citizen was hospitalized with a 1-inch cut and swelling above his eye.
