Family Disturbance and Violently Attacking an Officer Arrest


On Friday, August 12, 2016 at 2:40 p.m., officers responded to a call for service of a family disturbance at a residence, 1200 block North Ventura Avenue.  The suspect had locked himself inside the house and refused to allow his family inside.  When the officers arrived, they were able to open the door, however when they tried to talk with the suspect, Jesse Chase, 38, he initially retreated from them.  He then picked up a box spring mattress and tried to attack the officers with it.  After his initial attempt to attack the officers, they tried to physically restrain him; however he became more violent and began punching and fighting with the officers.  After a brief fight with him, the officers were able to place him under arrest. At the conclusion of the investigation, the suspect was medically cleared at VCMC for minor injuries and then booked into Ventura County Jail on the charge of violently resisting officers.  During the incident, one of the officers sustained a moderate injury to his head.  He was treated at VCMC but was unable to work the remainder of his shift.  He is expected to return to work for his next scheduled shift.
