HEMET – A woman was assaulted and her adult son was arrested after the 30-year-old man attacked and choked his mother Sunday, May 14. The violent Mother’s Day assault happened at the Rancho De Anza Mobile Home Park on the 24000 block of Highway 74 in the unincorporated community of Valle Vista.
After an investigation, deputies arrested David Lee Brown, of Hemet. He was booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning.
Deputies responded to the mobile home park shortly before 11 a.m., after receiving a 911 call from a person reporting a physical confrontation between a mother and son.
When deputies arrived, Brown reportedly became highly agitated and began fighting with deputies at the scene. During the confrontation, deputies put out an emergency call for assistance, which was answered by another deputy and several Hemet PD officers who rushed to the location to assist the deputies.
Before City of Hemet officers arrived at the mobile home park, deputies at the scene managed to subdue and detain the violently resisting man for further investigation.
After Brown was in custody, deputies summoned Cal Fire/Riverside County firefighters and American Medical Response medics to the park to evaluate and treat him for any injuries he may have received during the scuffle.
A neighbor at the scene, who declined to be identified, later said Brown suffers from mental stability issues and that he has become physical with his mother in the past. The neighbor explained the Mother’s Day incident escalated when Brown became upset and allegedly choked his mother.
An online jail records search revealed Brown was booked on suspicion of battery on a peace officer and is being held on $10,000 bail. It was not known if additional charges related to the originally reported battery would be added to Brown’s charges or if those allegations were unfounded. He is scheduled to be arraigned at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta May 17.
