Charles Rothenberg, the man who set his son afire in a Buena Park motel room seven years ago, surfaced Thursday for the first time since his parole, saying he lives in Oakland and moves about freely at restaurants and other public places. Nobody, he said, recognizes him. "It's a crummy neighborhood. Very bad. Gunshots all day and night," Rothenberg said in a two-hour telephone call to The Times. "The crack dealers and drug addicts could care less if I'm here."

At 16, "Tomboy" is wanted for burglary. She has dyed amber hair, a knife-cut tattoo on her forearm that says "I love Tuan" and a way of hunching her shoulders that tells adults to drop dead. She sits in silent fury under arrest in a lawn chair outside a motel room packed with 16 Vietnamese-American teens. Inside, a police search is turning up a switch-blade, a holster for an automatic, high-caliber bullets, a stun-gun, and what police think is stolen property.
