A 52-year-old man suspected of attacking a woman at a home in San Jacinto was jailed in lieu of $1 million bail today and facing possible charges of attempted murder, authorities said.
Deputies were sent around 2:15 a.m., Wednesday March 6 to the 900 block of South Santa Fe Avenue on a call of unknown trouble, said Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Michael Canizales.
A deputy located the victim on the porch of her house and the suspect, identified as Frank Campos of San Jacinto was seen dragging the woman back into the home, Canizales said.
Campos ran inside the house, where he barricaded himself for several minutes before surrendering, Canizales said.
The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, he said.
Campos was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, elder abuse, false imprisonment and felony vandalism, Canizales said.
He was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside, where he was being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
Campos was due in court in Murrieta on Friday, according to sheriff’s online jail records.
