A man who allegedly used an electric scooter to fatally beat a 63-year-old woman on a residential street in Long Beach was charged today with murder.

Amad Rashad Redding, 27, of Long Beach, was ordered to remain jailed in lieu of $2 million bail while awaiting arraignment May 29 at the Long Beach courthouse.

Rosa Elena Hernandez was attacked Monday in the 3100 block of East 64th Street in broad daylight — why remains unclear — and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Homicide detectives believe the suspect physically assaulted the victim and then proceeded to utilize a motorized scooter as a weapon during the assault,” police said.

The suspect was seen running westbound on 64th Street following the attack. About 4 ½ hours later, detectives took Redding into custody after  finding him at a convenience store in the area of Downey Avenue and Artesia Boulevard, a few blocks from the scene of the attack.
