Fort Bragg man allegedly tries to run over girlfriend, kids
Authorities last month arrested a 49-year-old Fort Bragg man who allegedly tried to run down his girlfriend and her two children with his vehicle when she walked away from their home, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were summoned at 3:30 p.m. Nov. 26 to the 18000 block of North Highway 1 for a report of assault with a deadly weapon. They spoke with a woman who said her boyfriend, Brian Deeter, became upset while they were home. She took her two daughters, ages 10 and 8, and walked away from the home because of his behavior, according to the MCSO.
A short time after she left, the woman saw Deeter driving his vehicle directly toward her. She jumped out of the way to avoid being hit, causing minor, visible injury, according to the MCSO. One of her children also took minor, visible injury from falling.
Deputies spoke to both children, who corroborated their mother’s report, according to the MCSO.
Deputies spoke to Deeter, who was at the scene, and arrested him on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. He was booked at the Mendocino County Jail under $30,000 bail.
Manchester man suspected of stalking, gun, drugs violations
Authorities last month arrested a 42-year-old Manchester man who allegedly stalked a woman, vandalized her home and brandished a rifle, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were summoned at 8:07 p.m. Nov. 27 to a home in the 100 block of Mountain View Road in Manchester for a report of a restraining order violation that had just happened.
Deputies spoke to the victim by phone as they were on their way to the scene and leaned that the suspect, John Logan, was found hiding on the property after the original restraining order violation, and that he brandished a rifle before leaving in a vehicle, according to the MCSO.
Deputies also knew that Logan had been reported violating the restraining order the day before, and had allegedly vandalized the woman’s home.
At 9:06 p.m., deputies arrived at the scene and immediately found Logan sitting in the vehicle he had been described leaving in, and arrested him on suspicion of stalking and violating a restraining order. Deputies searched him and the vehicle and found 0.2 grams of methamphetamine and a metal jack handle they believe he meant to use as a weapon.
Logan was booked at the Mendocino County Jail under $50,000 bail.
