A Redding man is behind bars for an attack on an 80 year old man, who was doing yard work in front of his home.
Police say it happened at 8:25 p.m. Friday night, on Greenback Lane.
Officers say for unknown reasons ... 29 year old William Isiah Noyes walked up behind the victim and punched him in the face ... causing him to fall and break his right femur.
Noyes fled on foot, and allegedly fought with officers who later located him in the area of Lake Blvd at Keswick Dam Road.
It turns out that Noyes was previously wanted for the attempted sexual assault of a 14 year old girl.
Right now he's facing charges of Elder Abuse, Resisting Arrest, Vandalism, and False Imprisonment.
