"I've never heard of that kind of thing either," a neighbor told KTTV earlier this week. "We've been living here for years since 1993, and it's the first time something like this has happened."

Redding was arrested about four hours after the attack, without incident, according to officials. On Monday, he was on bail of $ 2 million.
