Ventura police arrested a man suspected of domestic violence. A passerby attempted to intervene in the domestic dispute, and the suspect began to assault the man. Neighbors called police because of the altercation between the two men. Police found the passerby unconscious at the scene when they arrived.
According to witnesses, the suspect confronted the passerby about the dispute he’d witnessed. The suspect fled with the woman and an infant in a car before the police arrived.
While the police investigated the incident, the woman and the infant arrived at the Ventura County Medical Center. The woman sought treatment for assault injuries. Medical personnel transferred the infant to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles with potentially life-threatening injuries.
Police located the suspect the next day, and arrested him on suspicion of felony domestic violence. He also faces charges of witness intimidation, battery causing serious bodily injury and being a post-release offender. A judge set the suspect’s bail at $540,000.
