A Crestline man was arrested July 8 on suspicion of assaulting a 60-year-old woman at the San Moritz dog park. The victim suffered multiple injuries to her face and arms after the physical and verbal assault.

According to a press release from the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station, Jeffrey Igoe, 57, was positively identified based upon descriptions from the victim and a witness, along with deputies’ knowledge of prior incidents involving the suspect.

A warrant was issued for his arrest, which stemmed from an incident at the dog park at approximately 3 p.m. on July 5. The victim had taken her two dogs to the park and secured them in the large dog area. When Igoe’s dog began to behave aggressively, the victim complained. Igoe reportedly got upset and was verbally abusive. Then he allegedly took a chain leash and hit the victim

The suspect left the dog park before deputies arrived. A second woman entered the park as Igoe was leaving, and she was able to provide deputies with a description of the man and his direction of travel. Deputies were unable to locate the suspect at that time.

Once they identified Igoe and obtained a warrant, Sergeant Harris made contact with him at his residence. The press release reported that Harris arrested Igoe without incident, and transported him to West Valley Detention Center (WVDC) in Rancho Cucamonga. Igoe was booked for California Penal Code §245(a), assault with a deadly weapon resulting in great bodily injury.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has further information is encouraged to contact Deputy R. Perez or Sgt. Harris at the Twin Peaks station by calling (909) 336-0600.
