A Bellflower man was convicted Thursday, July 25, of assaulting another victim following a November 2011 road rage pursuit in Los Alamitos. Robert Allen Barnhart, 54, Bellflower, was found guilty by a jury of two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one misdemeanor count of battery. He faces a maximum sentence of five years and two months in state prison at his sentencing, which has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m., Sept. 27.
According to prosecutors, at approximately 10:50 a.m. on Nov. 5, 2011, Barnhart was driving his Dodge Ram truck on Bloomfield Avenue in Los Alamitos when he was rear-ended by 18-year-old Stanton resident Jesse Ochoa at a red traffic light.
Prosecutors said that Barnhart got out of his vehicle and confronted the victim by yelling and making threats at him.
