VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A 20-year-old Victorville woman was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after nearly striking another woman with her vehicle, officials said.
It happened at 12:53 am, on April 1, 2018, when Delena Sanchez drove to a residence in the 16400 block of Forrest Avenue, where the father of her baby lives and began repeatedly honking the horn.
According to Sheriff’s Spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez, the victim, a 26-year-old female relative of the baby’s father, went out to the car to ask her to stop and noticed the suspect’s 2–year-old toddler in the front seat, unrestrained.
“Fearing for the toddler’s safety, she tried to take him out of the car. The suspect began to back out of the driveway dragging the victim a short distance. The victim moved to the sidewalk and the suspect drove back towards her, causing her to jump out of the way. The car came within approximately two feet of hitting the victim,” stated Rodriguez.
Sanchez drove away from the location and was located later that morning by sheriff’s deputies at her residence in the 16600 block of Zenda Street in Victorville.
Sanchez was arrested and is currently being held in lieu of $50,000 for PC245(A)(1) assault with a deadly weapon. SHe is scheduled for arraignment in a Victorville courtroom on April 3, 2018, at 12:30 pm.
