Concerns raised over 51st Assembly District ballots; El Sereno dog owner assaulted during pet theft; missing Boyle Heights boy believed to be in Mexico

Ballots: The L.A. Times editorial board  says that campaign workers representing 51st Assembly District candidate Wendy Carrillo have been going door-to-door and reportedly asking voters to fill out and hand over their mail-in ballots. The practice is legal but the Times said it raises concerns about voter coercion and intimidation as well as the security of the ballots. Carrillo faces Luis Lopez in the Dec. 5 runoff. The candidates will participate in a debate on Nov. 21 at Cal State LA.

Dog Thief: An El Sereno man walking his pug in the 5700 block of Huntington Drive was pistol whipped and had his dog stolen by an alleged gang member. ABC7
