Authorities said that a man attempting to escape capture after he beat a woman and tried to choke her was found by a sheriff’s canine Saturday afternoon in Acampo.
Brian Ray White, 48, faces $175,000 bail and charges that include assault with great bodily injury after San Joaquin County Sheriff’s deputies said he evaded them on Saturday for more than seven hours.
Sheriff’s deputies initially responded to the 23000 block of North Highway 99 on the East Frontage Road to find a badly injured woman.
According to a daily report from the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department, White allegedly struck a 34-year-old female in the face with a closed fist, causing bruises.
White is also accused of attempting to strangle the woman by putting both his hands around her neck and squeezing it, the report stated.
The report went on to state that the woman had bruises on both her left and right upper arms, a bruised right eye and a small burn on her left index finger.
White allegedly went on to smash the windshield of the woman’s car with a dog chain, according to the report.
White attempted to evade deputies by hiding in what was described as an outbuilding, the report stated. However, with the help of a sheriff’s canine, he was eventually found around 3 p.m.
