MURRIETA – Felony charges are expected to be filed Monday against a 27-year-old parolee suspected of attacking a woman in her San Jacinto apartment, trying to kill her, then barricading himself inside the residence in an hourslong standoff with sheriff’s deputies.
Salvador Magdaleno Angulo was arrested and booked into the Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta Thursday on suspicion of attempted murder, mayhem, assault resulting in great bodily injury, child endangerment and parole violations.
Angulo is being held without bail. His case was under review Friday by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
According to sheriff’s Lt. Jeremy Harding, shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday, the suspect allegedly attacked a 51-year-old woman in her apartment in the 300 block of Shaver Street, where he was staying.
The relationship between Angulo and the victim was not disclosed, nor was her identity.
Harding alleged that the suspect assaulted the victim for an unspecified period, causing injuries that required immediate medical attention.
A child was present at the location but apparently wasn’t hurt. The minor’s identity and connection to the suspect weren’t divulged, nor was a possible motive for the alleged attack.
The sergeant said that witnesses called 911, and patrol deputies reached the apartment minutes later, at which point they encountered the victim, who was taken by ambulance to a regional medical center for treatment.
Her condition Friday could not be confirmed.
Harding said that deputies were unable to enter the apartment after Angulo allegedly barricaded himself alone inside.
“He refused to cooperate and fortified himself in the apartment,” the sheriff’s spokesman said. “Due to Angulo’s behavior, the surrounding area was evacuated, including a nearby elementary school, for public safety.”
The standoff lasted until 1:30 p.m., at which point Angulo surrendered without further incident, according to Harding.
Neither the suspect nor deputies were injured.
Jail records show that Angulo has several prior convictions, but they weren’t listed.
