A 79-year-old man who was brutally beaten while walking in his Richmond neighborhood last month has died from his injuries, police said this morning. Euvaldo Sisneros, who had been hospitalized since he was assaulted without provocation in the 2800 block of Humphrey Avenue at around 3:40 p.m. on June 16, died Tuesday afternoon, police said. A man reportedly approached Sisneros from behind and knocked him to the ground, repeatedly striking him on the head and the upper torso as he lay on the sidewalk, police said. The suspect then left Sisneros unconscious on the sidewalk and ran away. On June 17, police arrested 21-year-old Michael Cordova Villalobos, of Richmond, after an officer spotted him and noticed that Villalobos matched the description of the suspect in the beating. He was booked into jail on an outstanding theft warrant and charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, police said at the time. Based on information from witnesses, investigators are convinced that Villalobos was the attacker, police Lt. Mark Gagan said. He is now being held on a probation violation. Police are presenting the case to the district attorney’s office today and are seeking to have Villalobos charged with murder, Gagan said.  Sisneros’ death has devastated his family, both emotionally and financially, Gagan said. “It’s been identified as a big priority for the family to get some support financially,” Gagan said.  He said police are working to set up a fund for the family.
