Man convicted of Davis domestic-violence assault

A Yolo County jury convicted a 47-year-old Winters man on Jan. 30 of assaulting his girlfriend outside a West Davis apartment complex.

Jesus Luis Reyes was found guilty of inflicting corporal injury on his girlfriend, false imprisonment with force or violence, and two counts of dissuading witnesses from calling law enforcement in connection with the April 4, 2019, incident.

Prosecutors said Reyes was driving, his girlfriend in the front passenger seat, when he started to violently punch, slap and head-butt the woman in what one witness described as a “continuous beating.” Reyes’ girlfriend struggled to get out of the car, but he pulled her back inside and tried to drive away.

2020欧洲杯手机投注A Davis mother and her son, who were outside, saw the brutal assault and yelled at Reyes to “let her go, let her go.” Reyes pulled out of the apartment complex, pointed his finger directly at the mother and her son and told them, “You don’t tell anyone.” Reyes drove off with the victim in the car before law enforcement could arrive.

2020欧洲杯手机投注With the help of the mother and her son, who were able to get the car’s license-plate number, the Davis Police Department tracked down Reyes and his girlfriend. Davis and Winters police worked together to locate the girlfriend, who was still bleeding from her face two hours after the assault. Reyes barricaded himself in his house and lied to officers about where the whereabouts of his girlfriend, who was crouched down behind Reyes in the home.

“We pursue justice for victims and witnesses of domestic violence crimes. People who physically abuse their significant others can be extremely violent. When this type of violence is seen in public, it is not usually the first signs of physical abuse in the relationship,” District Attorney Jeff Reisig said. “We are fortunate there are people in the community who will stand up and call law enforcement when seeing such extreme violence.”
