Escaped domestic violence suspect captured
April 29, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A domestic violence suspect who escaped from a patrol car in unincorporated San Mateo County Thursday night was captured Saturday evening in Mountain View, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Juan Carlos Valencia, 27, was taken into custody around 5:14 p.m. Saturday after having escaped two days earlier in the North Fair Oaks area, Sheriff’s Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said Saturday.

Valencia was first arrested Thursday after citizens in the 2700 block of Devonshire Avenue in unincorporated San Mateo County reported a domestic violence assault in progress.

Deputies found Valencia and a female victim on the sidewalk, and after conducting interviews, arrested Valencia for allegedly assaulting and injuring his girlfriend.

He was handcuffed and placed in the back seat of a patrol car, but escaped on foot.

Deputies pursued on foot and searched the area, but were unable to locate him.

Valencia’s escape is under investigation.

He was booked into San Mateo County Jail Saturday evening on a $135,000 warrant on charges including domestic violence, false imprisonment with violence, violation of a protective order and terrorist threats.
