SAN JACINTO – A man allegedly assaulted and abducted his girlfriend Thursday, March 9, in San Jacinto, then fled in a stolen vehicle to a city more than 75 miles away, where he was arrested following a chase.
Jesus Millan, 42, was booked into the Robert Presley Jail in Riverside on suspicion of kidnapping, robbery, mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon, auto theft and felony evading. Bail information was not immediately available.
According to Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Duckett, the suspect and his girlfriend, whose name was withheld, became involved in a domestic altercation at her family’s home in the 1800 block of Villnes Avenue about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Millan allegedly flew into a rage, beating the woman and several of her relatives, taking cash from them and then dragging her out of the home to a red sedan, later confirmed stolen, Duckett said.
The family immediately called 911, and deputies swarmed the area, searching for the vehicle, without any luck, according to the sergeant.
He said a description of the car was provided to law enforcement agencies throughout the region, and shortly before 4 this morning, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies spotted it in Norwalk.
Millan allegedly ignored deputies’ commands to stop and sped away eastbound, eventually connecting to the Riverside (91) Freeway, Duckett said.
California Highway Patrol officers took over the high-speed pursuit, which ended in the Riverside metropolitan area, where the suspect was forcibly taken into custody, according to Duckett.
The woman was transported to a Riverside hospital for treatment of serious injuries, he said.
Millan has no prior documented felony convictions in Riverside County.
