David Comer of Westchester says his son was heading home from a soccer game on Saturday when he was grabbed and threatened.

”And this homeless came up and grabbed around the neck and says, “you’re not going to see your parents after I kill you.”

His kid broke free but had a mark on his neck. Comer says the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the case. A sergeant at the Pacific Division station said they’re collecting evidence. Comer insists it’s less about homelessness and more about violence against children.

”But when it comes to the violence, it’s not a homeless problem at that. It was a violent act that happened on an 11-year-old kid.”

He says his entire neighborhood is living in fear of the suspect.
