Wildomar woman violently attacked; Family seeks aid

WILDOMAR – A harrowing incident involving alleged domestic violence was captured on security footage outside a residence in Wildomar, leaving a family seeking assistance.

Maria Denis was attacked in her driveway reportedly by a former boyfriend, while her 15-year-old daughter, Emily De Los Angeles, screamed for help and pleaded for the assailant to stop. De Los Angeles reported her mother is now in the hospital suffering from severe injuries, including a broken back and hips, with a projected recovery period of three months.

According to a GoFundMe page set up by the family, Denis’ former boyfriend confronted her at her residence around 1 a.m. When Denis expressed her desire to cut ties with him, he reacted violently.

The suspect has since been detained, but the family is requesting financial aid. Records indicate that Denis was employed in two capacities as a certified nursing assistant to support her two children.

Although identities of domestic violence victims are usually protected, in this instance, the family has opted to disclose their identities in their quest to garner public support.

The family’s GoFundMe page reads, “We’re reaching out to you in the aftermath of an unimaginable tragedy that has shattered our family. My beloved aunt and mother of 3 was brutally beaten and run over by her ex boyfriend last night. He showed up to her house at 1am and she asked him to leave, she told him she wanted nothing to do with him. He didn’t like that so decided to attempt to kill her. After punching her over and over in the face he then ran her over and dragged her leaving her in the hospital with a broken back and hips. He took off in her car”

It continues, “With your help, we can navigate through this trying time and commence our healing journey. Every contribution, no matter how small, makes a difference.”
