Burglary victims wake to spice rub, sausage attack

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

Lt. Ian Burrimond, describing the crime as one of the strangest he's ever heard of, said a suspect was found hiding in a nearby field a few minutes later and taken into custody on suspicion of residential robbery.

Deputies, he said, had no problem linking the suspect to the crime.

"It seems the guy ran out of the house wearing only a T-shirt, boxer shorts and socks, leaving behind his wallet with his ID," Burrimond said.

Arrested was Antonio Vasquez, 22, of Fresno.

Burrimond said deputies headed to the victims' home in the 300 block of South Thompson Avenue near Kings Canyon Road outside of Sanger shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday regarding a burglary in progress.

The victims, both farmworkers, told deputies they were awakened by a stranger applying spices to one of them and striking the other with a sausage.

Both the spices and the sausage, Burrimond said, were obtained from the victims' kitchen.

After the man fled, the victims discovered the home had been ransacked and that some money was taken, Burrimond said.

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.

"I tell you, this was one weird case."

I am 100% positive the culprit is back posting on the OG after his successful house penetration attack.

For sure on Oger.

Kirik, IMO.

 Damn! That's only about 25-30 miles from where I live.

Checks door locks and discards all refrigerated meat products

we all win!!!

what kind of sausage was he ASSualted with?

"It puts the spices on Its skin or it gets the sausage again!"

It was not me...I was watching the Red Soxs game with friends

the culprit already made a new thread on the OG calling for other OG'ers to come here and raise hell.

Obviously, that thread starter is the culprit and I have alerted the proper authorities. He probably had big plans for the spicy sausage and is just enraged that some lucky dog got to eat it first before he violated his own colon with it.

The culprit had been partying all night long at a near by sausage fest when he went on the rampage.

nothing wrong with sausage

only in fresno

Sounds like a college frat initiation prank to me.....

 big deal.. happens all the time in San Fransisco!

OK that is a proper wtf

That is pretty strange I must say.
