Porterville Recorder - - THE RECORD -

MODESTO — Po­lice in cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia say a 70-year-old se­cu­rity guard was killed af­ter try­ing to in­ter­vene in a fight in a park­ing garage.

Modesto Po­lice De­part­ment spokes­woman Heather Graves says Karl White­head died of his in­juries in a hos­pi­tal on Sun­day.

The Modesto Bee re­ports the as­sault hap­pened Fri­day night in a down­town Modesto park­ing garage.

The de­part­ment says 33-year-old Don Lacey was booked into the Stanis­laus County Jail on charges that in­clude as­sault with great bod­ily in­jury.

Graves says Lacey al­legedly struck White­head af­ter the guard tried to in­ter­vene in an ar­gu­ment be­tween the sus­pect and a fe­male park­ing at­ten­dant.

She says a wit­ness fol­lowed Lacey as he left the garage. The wit­ness helped of­fi­cers find Lacey, who was taken into cus­tody.
