    A despicable crime. Things like this leave me speechless.

    NORTH HIGHLANDS, Calif. (KCRA) —
    New details given by friends revealed that an 86-year-old woman was killed trying to protect her friend during an attack by a man on the Highlands High School track.

    Fusako Petrus lived in North Highlands and was out for a morning walk Wednesday with her 61-year-old friend when a man approached the pair, according to Petrus' family friends.

    “She's walked her for 30 years and lives in this neighborhood. And has felt safe in this neighborhood," family friend Vicki Butler said. “They were taking the appropriate actions to not be alone. So it's frustrating that someone was brazen enough to attack them.”

    Butler said Petrus tried to fend off the attacker, but he used his hands and feet to kill Petrus and injured her friend.
    “The other woman was attacked first from my understanding," Butler explained. "He was choking her and Fusako started hitting him with her walking stick. And it allowed her (neighbor) to get away.”

    An 18-year-old man is a person of interest in this case and was arrested Wednesday afternoon on unrelated charges after he assaulted an older woman near Fair Oaks Boulevard and Howe Avenue in Sacramento.

    Friends hail woman, 86, killed trying to stop attack as hero

    Neven Glen Butler, 18, was arrested the same day he was detained in an unrelated assault of a 92-year-old woman a few miles (kilometers) away, Sacramento sheriff's Sgt. Tony Turnbull said. She was treated at a hospital for facial injuries.

    Homicide detectives tied Butler to the sexual assaults of Fusako Petrus, 86, and her 61-year-old friend earlier Wednesday while both were out for a walk, Turnbull said. Petrus died after she was badly beaten. Her friend was treated for injuries.

    "I think she's a hero. She gave her life to save her friend," said Dolores Hines, who lives down the block from Petrus and her walking companion, whom authorities have not identified.
