Mammoth Police arrested a Victorville man for attempted murder Monday morning after, they said, he tried to choke his girlfriend three different times.
Officer Dan Casabian said it all started late Sunday night with a call about people yelling at a home on Mono St. Officers found a man and a woman who said they were just arguing. An hour later, another disturbance call. This time the woman told police her boyfriend had given them a false name and that he had tried to choke her. She fell down, passed out, she said, and he tried to choke her again when she came to.
Mammoth Police said the man’s brother tried to stop him and called 911. The man fled. Police learned he was Jonathan Anderson, 24 of Victorville. Officers said the man returned and tried, a third time, to choke his 22-year-old girlfriend.
A computer check showed he was a parolee at large with a felony fraud warrant and a parole hold. Police searched the area for the man but couldn’t find him. The morning shift came in, and with four Sheriff’s deputies returned to the neighborhood.
Officers went to the home of the victim, finally gained entry and found her sleeping. A deputy checked under her bed, and found the suspect hiding there. Officers arrested Anderson and booked him on attempted murder, domestic violence, breaking a phone while someone dialed 911, an outstanding felony fraud warrant and a parole hold.
