2 workers were killed in attack at Tustin Testing, vaccination site

On Dec. 30, a man attacked workers at a Tustin mobile vaccination and testing center. Health care workers are concerned that there could be more such incidents in the future.

Alexander Rossel, CEO of Families Together of Orange County, stated that the alleged attacker was 43-year old Thomas Apollo. He struck two workers and had to be stopped by several people before police arrived.

“We just said, ‘Please sir, calm down, put your mask on and we are just doing our jobs,’ and then suddenly he just started punching,”Rossel spoke.

Rossel claimed that officers shocked Apollo using a stun gun and took him to jail. But, jail records show that Apollo was freed on December 31, 2021.

“It can happen again. My staff is afraid,”Rossel spoke.

The Orange County District Attorney’s office expects to decide on potential charges, such as misdemeanor battery, for Apollo on Monday.
