A Sonoma man was arrested on multiple felony charges after an argument with his live-in girlfriend turned physical.
On July 1, deputies were called to a residence in the 18000 block of Highway 12 for a dispute between a boyfriend and girlfriend over laundry. At one point, the suspect tried to grab the couple’s 2-year-old child and leave. The victim tried to make a call and the suspect smashed the phone and punched the victim. The victim tried to lock the suspect out of the residence, but the suspect pushed the air conditioner into the residence and crawled in through the open window.
The suspect reportedly hit the victim again before grabbing her cell phone and leaving. When the deputies finally arrived, the suspect was nowhere to be found.
On July 7, the deputies called the suspect and convinced him to come to the Valley substation to turn himself in, which he did the next day. The suspect denied hitting the victim and said that he lives at the residence and pays rent.
But the deputies arrested Jesus Cuevas-Avendano, 24, on charges of felony burglary, felony robbery, felony threaten with intent to terrorize, domestic violence battery and damaging a wireless communications device. He was transported to the county jail.
