Crowbar creep faces sentencing 

A vicious robber who beat an elderly Daly City woman to near-death with a crowbar during a 2008 house heist is set to be sentenced Monday.

Jose Perez-Gonzalez, 31, was found guilty in November on seven of eight felony counts in connection with the horrid home-invasion robbery in January 2008, according to San Mateo Country prosecutors.

After beating and robbing the 77-year-old woman in her home, he fled to his native Mexico, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Daly City detectives “doggedly tracked him” in Mexico, then obtained a no-bail arrest warrant, Wagstaffe said. He was arrested in his native city of Guadalajara and extradited back to San Mateo County.

The victim lost her eyesight in the attack, and is now staying in an assisted living residence, Wagstaffe said.

Perez-Gonzalez remains in custody.
