January 30, 2011
A Guadalupe man allegedly broke into his ex-wife’s Grover Beach home, entered her bedroom and attacked her and her current boyfriend, at about 5 a.m. on Sunday.
The ex-wife and her teenage son were able to force Rafael Guzman Jimenez, 37, out of her 14th Street home. He eventually fled the residence followed by Grover Beach Police officers.
A short pursuit ended when Guzman crashed his Chevy Tahoe into a tree on Trouville Avenue.
He ran from the vehicle and fought with officers who ran him down and subdued him with the assistance of a Taser gun.
Guzman’s ex-wife and her boyfriend were transported to Arroyo Grande Community Hospital by ambulance and treated for facial injuries they received during the attack. One of the arresting officers was treated for a hand injury.
Guzman was transported to the hospital, treated for injuries he sustained during the confrontation with the two victims at the home, the vehicle collision and from resisting arrest.
Police booked him into San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of burglary, domestic abuse, child abuse, injuring a police officer, assault with a deadly weapon, violating a restraining order, driving drunk and with a suspended license.
