San Marcos man charged w attempted murder for alleged car-ramming
Man who rescued domestic violence victim was reportedly pinned tween cars
A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder for using his car to ram another man who had intervened in a domestic violence dispute, according to a Sheriff’s statement this morning.
Jorge Alcantara Colin was taken into custody in San Marcos after 8 p.m. yesterday evening, according to Sergeant Dan Deese. The parolee was arrested without incident at an apartment complex in the 500 block of Barham Drive, according to the sergeant.
Sheriff’s deputies reported two weeks ago, on January 21, that a man who helped rescue a battered woman, was smashed between two cars when the alleged abuser returned and rammed the rescuer with his car.
It was a Monday evening about 7:30 p.m., when several concerned persons intervened and stopped a man battering a woman, near the corner of Rue de Valle and Margie Place, in San Marcos, it was reported. The allegedly-abusive-man drove away, but then made an abrupt U-turn and returned, deputies said.
The abuser allegedly rammed his Mitsubishi sedan into the rescuer, pinning the victim between the sedan and his own pickup truck which was parked at the curb, it was reported.
“Witnesses then claim Alcantara exited his vehicle and began to beat the victim until other witnesses intervened and stopped the attack,” according to Sgt. Deese. “Alcantara fled the scene and was not contacted until today.” The smashed Mitsubishi was abandoned at the scene, according to deputies.
The man who was pinned between the vehicles suffered “serious injuries to his leg” and was taken to hospital.
Jorge Alcantara Colin, 21, is now on a “parole hold” and is held without bail, according to the Sheriff’s statement. The suspect is scheduled to be in court the afternoon of February 5.
