Repo Man's Assault Leads to Arrest

Jason Diskin, 46, was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of assault, police say.

Two men were arrested yesterday for attacking a man trying to repossess a truck in unincorporated Murrieta, police said.

Jason Diskin, 46, of Temecula, and Joshua Brown, 39, of Hemet, are free on bail today after they were booked at the Southwest Detention Center last night on suspicion of carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon, according to Riverside County Sheriff's Department online booking records. 

The alleged victim was preparing to tow the truck with his own vehicle when the two suspects attacked him. The victim, who was sitting inside the truck when the attack began, fled back to his vehicle and called 911.

What's wrong with you people. Life is tough and bad choices are made, but these 2 guys live in America. You're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. There are 2 sides to every story and only one was told here. Hold you judements until at least all the story is told. Maybe, just maybe, these 2 guys didn't do what the article says they are acccused of. Maybe all the did was not pay their bills....maybe the fed their kids instead. There's no debters prisons in America. CHILL OUT!!!!!!!!

Repo men are supposed to leave if there is a confrontation and have police assist them.
