A Los Angeles man is accused of staging phony car accidents in order to dupe at least 10 elderly drivers into paying him. Investigators believe there may be more victims.
David Stevens, 42, allegedly waved down senior drivers, accused them of hitting his car, and threatened to report them to the DMV if they didn't pay for his phony repairs, Los Angeles' KABC-TV reports. He was arrested on suspicion of grand theft, felony stalking, and burglary.
And because his alleged victims were all between 70 and 90 years old, Stevens faces an additional charge that he wouldn't have faced had he targeted younger drivers.
