Man caught on camera kicking woman in the face turns himself in

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A San Diego man was jailed Thursday for allegedly kicking a woman into unconsciousness last weekend during a quarrel at a South Bay motel.

Surveillance video captured images of a man later identified as Dorian Chavez Anguiano, 42, driving into a parking area at the lodge on Broadway in Chula Vista with a female passenger shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday, according to police.

The security-camera footage then shows the couple getting out of the sedan and the man hurrying around to the passenger side, where he kicks the woman twice -- first in the back, knocking her to the ground, then in the head, after which she lies still.

At that point, the assailant struggles to pick up the limp victim and loads her into the car before getting back behind the wheel and driving off.

Investigators identified the suspect and victim with help from witness statements and the surveillance images, which were released to the news media. Officers located the woman later in the evening, and medics treated her for non- life-threatening injuries, Lt. Fritz Reber said.

The lieutenant declined to disclose the victim's relationship to the suspect, who remained at large until about 8 this morning, when he turned himself in at Chula Vista police headquarters.

Anguiano was booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of assault, kidnapping and inflicting injuries on a spouse or cohabitant. He was being held on $180,000 bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Monday afternoon.
