A 30-year-old man was arrested Saturday morning after allegedly assaulting his mother at a home in Temecula and then attacking a police officer who responded to a family disturbance call, authorities said.
Aaron Paul Graves was taken into custody following a response by Temecula police to the 31110 block of Tecumseh Court at 7:43 a.m., the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said in a press release.
Graves’ mother had called to report the initial assault, the release said. The officers arrived at the house within minutes and attempted to “make contact” with the suspect after he fled into a bedroom, officials said.
“A short time later, Graves emerged from the bedroom and attacked one of the officers,” according to the release. “After a lengthy altercation, [he] was placed under arrest and transported to a local hospital.”
His injuries were not considered to be life-threatening, the Sheriff’s Department said. The arresting officers, who were also injured in the incident, were treated at local hospital and later released.
