Adam Barcenas, age 56

On 4/13/19, at about 11:45 a.m., an elderly female in her early 70’s was attempting to get into her vehicle near the intersection of Sixth Street and A Street when the suspect, Adam Barcenas (age 56), approached her, punched her in the head, and pushed her to the ground. While the victim was on the ground, suspect Barcenas kicked the victim in the back multiple times before walking away. The victim did not know the suspect.

A short while later, suspect Barcenas approached an elderly male in his early 80’s, who was walking with his wife near the intersection of Sixth and A Street. Barcenas punched the elderly male in the face and walked away. The male victim started walking back towards his vehicle when Barcenas came back and punched the elderly male again. Suspect Barcenas was a stranger to the second victim also.

An off-duty private security guard intervened by pepper spraying suspect Barcenas and detaining him until officers arrived. Downtown security guards also assisted in helping detain suspect Barcenas.

Both elderly victims received minor injuries, received emergency medical treatment on scene, and refused to be transported to a medical facility for further treatment.  

Suspect Barcenas has an extensive history of violence, disorderly conduct, and robbery and is currently on parole. He was arrested for two counts of felony elder abuse, battery, and a parole violation.
