BREAKING: Woman sustains serious head trauma in Temecula domestic violence incident

TEMECULA – Very few details have been officially released after a woman reportedly sustained severe head injuries during a domestic violence incident that occurred in the 27600 block of Jefferson Avenue, in Temecula. The incident was reported to Riverside County emergency dispatchers at about 10:45 p.m., according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Public Information Officer Deputy Armando Munoz.

There are no residences in the mostly business area where the incident was reported; which is lined with restaurants, businesses, bars and a hotel. Munoz was not able to provide details where the incident actually occurred, citing an ongoing criminal investigation. However, there were several witnesses who helped the victim while waiting for emergency first responders to arrive.

One witness, Teresa Uribe, who said she was staying at the Extended Stay America on Jefferson Avenue and was on her way back to her hotel from a nearby restaurant with her husband, stated she helped provide aid and comfort to the victim while waiting for police and other emergency first responders to arrive. Uribe stated the woman was disoriented, covered in blood and had sustained what she believed to be multiple stab wounds to her head.

Paramedics treated the victim, who has not been publicly identified, at the scene before they transported her to Temecula Valley Hospital for further treatment.

As of 11:45 p.m. Munoz could not provide any details regarding the full extent of the victim’s injuries and could not confirm if she had been stabbed or struck with some other unknown object. However, he confirmed deputies had located a suspect who was allegedly involved in the incident and he was in custody.

  • Any update on this crime and its victim or the suspect? We in the community deserve to know the trends and specifics of crime in our community and what measures and strategies community leaders develop as a response. A “nothing to see here” stance by authorities based on ongoing investigation could be so broad as to contravene transparency completely.

    • There has been no update I can locate whatsoever, Dave. The victim might not have been willing to cooperate with prosecutors or there could be any number of reasons. I was never even able to even get the name of the suspect, which is definitely odd.
