A man was accused with assault with a deadly weapon Tuesday in connection with a domestic violence call involving his mother-in-law and a pursuit, according to Banning police.
Officers were dispatched about noon Oct. 29 to the 2700 block of West Ramsey for a reported "domestic violence in progress," Banning police said in a statement.
"The original caller was later identified as the mother-in-law of the suspect and said she was being held at gun point by her estranged son-in-law," police said.
The son-in-law was later identified as Jaime Wilbert Quevedo, 34, of Banning, according to police and inmate records.
"Officers responded and located the mother at a convenience store," police said. "The woman reported that she escaped from Quevedo after trying to prevent him from assaulting her daughter."
Quevedo reportedly chased his mother-in-law to the store in his vehicle, police said. While she was on the phone with police, she reported he was fleeing the area in his vehicle.
"Officers located Quevedo driving his vehicle and a short pursuit ensued through the City of Banning," police said. "Quevedo was pursued back to his residence where he jumped out of the truck and fled into his residence."
Quevedo came out of his house and surrendered to officers without incident, police said.
"Officers detained Quevedo and obtained a search warrant for his home where they located the firearm described by the victim," police said. "Ammunition belonging to the firearm was located in Quevedo's vehicle."
The mother-in-law was treated by Cal Fire for minor injuries she sustained during the alleged attack and returned home, according to police.
Quevedo was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and evading police and booked at Smith Correctional in Banning. He was released Oct. 30 on $25,000 bail and he has a court date Dec. 24 in Indio, according to inmate records.
