Two San Dimas men were convicted in the beating of Glendora man late last year, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The two 19-year-old defendants, Mark Antoine Hachem and Gabriel Andrew Ojeda, were convicted in a Pomona courthouse Thursday of assault and causing great bodily harm to the 22-year-old victim. Hachem was convicted on a witness intimidation charge, although a jury dismissed the same charge for Ojeda. Ojeda received a misdemeanor assault conviction.
According to Glendora Police, the attack was carried out Dec. 26 in Glendora on Gladstone Street and Willow Avenue because the defendants believed the victim was a witness in another assault case. The victim was punched and kicked to the ground, according to police reports.
Ojeda was sentenced to four years and six months in state prison, while Hachem’s sentencing is still pending.
