    A 300-pound, naked bodybuilder attacked a Colton, Calif., couple when they returned home, savagely beating the husband and tossing the wife around like a rag doll, according to police.

    Neighbors came to the couple's aid and chased suspect Ruben Arzu, 22, from the home, and it took four cops to subdue him, according to police. The 5-foot-10 Arzu, who police believe was under the influence of drugs including steroids, shrugged off tasers and police needed four sets of handcuffs to arrest him, according to the San Bernardino Sun.

    "It's a good thing our officers arrived on scene so quickly, because who knows who was next," Colton police spokesman Ray Mendez told the paper.

    The 35-year-old husband suffered major head trauma, but was upgraded to stable condition at an area hospital. He and his wife came home late Saturday to find the naked Arzu on their porch, according to police. The husband was attacked when he confronted Arzu, and the wife was attacked as she called 911. She suffered facial injuries and multiple cuts to her head.

    "The suspect violently attacked the husband, causing major head trauma and injuries," Mendez told the paper. "As the husband is getting beaten, the wife comes out and the suspect shifts his attention to her."

    Arzu was booked on suspicion of attempted homicide.
