Drunken man confronted by angry father after allegedly chasing teenage girls home
WINDSOR — An intoxicated man was arrested after allegedly chasing two teenage girls home and being confronted and detained by their father.
Just before 11 AM on August 29, deputies responded to the 300 block of Duncan Drive, where a 9-1-1 caller had reportedly physically detained a man who’d chased his two teenage daughters home while heavily intoxicated.
The caller told deputies that his two daughters, ages 13 and 14, had come home in visible distress, followed shortly thereafter by the suspect — identified only as a 36-year-old man — who began pounding on the door.
The girls’ father opened the door to confront the man and was allegedly punched in the chest for his trouble. Undeterred, the girls’ father fought back. When the man tried to flee, the father chased him down and held him until deputies arrived and took him into custody.
The suspect told deputies, who noted that he was clearly heavily intoxicated, that he hadn’t been chasing the girls and was simply looking for a friend.
The girls’ family, however, told them the same man had followed them home and tried to force his way into the house just the previous week, but the mother was able to shut the door and lock him out. Authorities say this incident was not initially reported but is now under investigation.
The man was later booked at the Sonoma County Main Adult Detention Facility on suspicion of annoying a child under 18, burglary, public intoxication, and assault.
