Home invasion victim assaulted with sausage; Dog eats evidence

The Fresno Bee reports:
A burglar who broke into a home just east of Fresno rubbed spices over the body of one of two men as they slept in their rooms and then used an 8-inch sausage to whack the other man on the face and head before running out of the house, Fresno County sheriff's deputies said Saturday.

The suspect, Antonio Vasquez, 22, of Fresno, was unknown to the victims. He was captured hiding in a nearby field minutes after the crime. His identity was confirmed by the police as he accidentally left his wallet in the victims' home upon fleeing, according to Lt. Ian Burrimond of the Fresno Police Department.

Even with his driver's license seized as evidence, prosecutors may have difficulty convicting Vasquez:
Burrimond said the money was recovered, but that the piece of sausage used in the attack was discarded by the suspect and eaten by a dog.

"That's right, the dog ate the weapon," Burrimond said.

Only in Fresno?

Rubbing a red herring on them would be rather stinky.

But I know what you meant. Perhaps an '8-inch sausage' was innuendo for something else. And no evidence cause 'the dog ate it'. Lol.

Still, if this story is true as it appears, then it's awesome. I don't know how the 1st guy didn't wake up while someone was rubbing spices 'ove his body'.
