Woman Injured in Beaumont Domestic Violence, Man Arrested in San Bernardino

A domestic dispute was reported early Sunday in the 1300 block of Bird of Paradise Court in Beaumont, a spokeswoman for Beaumont police said. The girlfriend, an adult female, was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

A Beaumont man was behind bars Monday on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend at a Beaumont residence early Sunday.

She was hospitalized for treatment of her injuries.

Alfredo Lopez, 32, allegedly fled to San Bernardino, where he eventually surrendered to San Bernardino police, a Beaumont spokeswoman said Monday.

Someone called 9-1-1 at 2:53 a.m. Sunday and reported a domestic dispute in the 1300 block of Bird of Paradise Court, just east of the Anna Hause Elementary School campus and Cherry Avenue, according to Beaumont spokeswoman Darci Mulvihill.

Police arrived and determined a male suspect, identified as Lopez, had assaulted his girlfriend and fled the scene, with a possible destination of a family member’s residence in the city of San Bernardino, Mulvihill said in a statement.

The girlfriend, an adult female, was transported to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries, Mulvihill said.

Beaumont police requested assistance from San Bernardino police, who responded to a home in the 3700 block of Big Canyon Court, between Waterman Avenue and Little Mountain Drive in north San Bernardino.

Police tried to make contact with Lopez, who initially refused to come out of the residence,  Mulvihill said.

Just before 9:28 a.m. Sunday, Lopez surrendered to police and was arrested, Mulvihill said.

Lopez was booked early Monday at Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning on the charges of spousal abuse and threatening to commit a crime which causes great bodily injury or death, according to Mulvihill and inmate records.

He was held without bail. He has a court appearance Wednesday in Banning.

An update on his girlfriend's condition was not available Monday.

Anyone with further information about the incident was urged to contact Beaumont police at (951) 769-8500.

no matter what he is responsible for his actions. People have their children die everday...do they go and beat on someone? people get depressed...do they go and beat their girfriend up?couples get into arguements...and they dont get abusive. that is no excuse to condone what he did. He honostly does need counseling and help but deserves what he gets as well.
Henry arriola September 21, 2011 at 07:06 PM
We will all meet are maker one day, and it says " do not judge, for u will b held accountable for the same judgment in wich U judged others"!!!!!! No excuses for wat he did, jus make sure the wndow in ur lookn out if is clean b4 u pass judgment!!!!! LOVE & RESPECT....IN OUR PRAYERS FREDO & GIRLFRIEND!!!!!

This is unfortunate, as a father of 3 daughters myself and brother/uncle to family members who served in Iraqi and still serve this great nation, I understand the post traumatic stress combat personal have. All I can say first he must take responsibility for his actions then our society must give him the help he deserves. Compassion is needed!
tiff September 21, 2011 at 07:39 PM
I got to agree with Henry no one is condoning what the situation is, of course people that don't know him or the kind of person he is will past judgment on him like I said I'm not saying what happened is right. It someone said people lose their children go to war everyday well I'm sorry to say but people go through domestic violence everyday. But because his made front page everyone has an opinion about it. It has to do with two people and only they know the truth. Newspapers dont always speak what really happened that night. And I think everyone who's been around long enough know exactly what I'm talking about. Dont pass judgment until you know the exact story. By all means I'm not saying it was right stay strong fredo and girlfriend prayers are with you both

My cousin Alfredo is a Great Man with flaws just like anyone else. He has served this country and is a Veteran of the Iraq War, who saw some of his closest friends killed in battle. He also just recently lost a child. That's not an excuse for what my cousin did. I'm letting those of you know, who don't know, what he's dealing with. I pray that no man ever have to go through what he is going through, or has been through. You wouldn't want to walk the walk he has, if you did, you probably would'nt be here. My cousin Armando and good friend Henry, and other's posting comments in his defense, Thank You! The Lopez Family has apologized to the woman involved, and we apologize again. We love you and we will get through this.Those of you passing judgement on him, I pray for you, for you are lost.
sydney September 21, 2011 at 09:55 PM
I pray that no woman or man would ever have to go through what the girlfriend is going through or has been through. Thats ridiculous... all focus on the abuser, what about the abused? that's horrible. Who knows if someone hadnt intervened if she would still have been here. They both need a lot of counseling and help. yes... he might be a good guy but people dont know all aspects of a persons life.
Henry arriola September 21, 2011 at 10:14 PM
How bout ths sydney.... U hav no idea about ths situation personally, so f u hav nothn good or helpful to say... Maybe u shuld stay off ths blog!!!!! its not focus on focus on the abuser, its tryin to support someone we truly kno is a good guy, who made a poor decision!!!! I truly feel for the abused, & am prayin for them both, AS WELL AS U!!!! plz, both sides r goin thru enuff keep ur negetive oppinions to urself plz???
armando Lopez jr. September 21, 2011 at 11:01 PM

By knowing Fredo personally, I can honestly say he's is a good person with a big heart. Fredo is a everyday hero, an has served his country in more then one way! Only the one's involved can really know the truth & know whats really going on. An everyone needs to remember that everyone makes mistakes. NO ONE IS PERFECT. An yes he does need help, but I'm confident that Fredo will get that help an better himself from this situation. Alfredo you & your girlfriend are in mine & Nathans prayers. An I know you will be just fine. God will take care you guys!!! We love you!!!! Roxanne
Rational optimist September 22, 2011 at 05:34 PM
God will take care of you? You are in my prayers??? I hope you don't have any daughters!!! I'm sure this woman knew him personally also..he hit her so hard and so often that he sent her to the hospital..oh well, I guess any "good person with a big heart" would have done that!!! What a gentle soul. I never wanted jury duty until now

This is out of control. I personally knew his gf and not Alfredo. If you are on the wrong you are on the wrong. What he did was not something a man of god or a "good guy would do". No one is passing judgements or condemning Alfredo here, everyone is saying what is right and what is wrong. No one should be condoning his actions or bad behavior because of serving our country or losing a child. People have terrible things happen all the time therefore you turn 2 god in ur time of need 4 comfort & understanding not beat your gf who is 10 times smaller than u & way less stronger than u as well. U deal w/ lifes problems & difficulties & guess what life goes on. God says you love your wife like Jesus loves his church....if that doesn't say a lot than what does. Family member or not u don't need 2 b in someone's shoes 2 know what happen or make excuses as its ok to beat the heck out of ur gf for things goin on in ur life. If a situation is so bad u can't handle it..guess what walk away or leave. Iv known people in wayyyy worse situations than there's & they got through it w/o abuse. No one really knows someone until things go down than its a totally different story. It starts w/ abuse than leads 2 worse things. No woman deserves to be struck by a man under any circumstances EVER!!!! society allows & excepts peoples bad behavior. There are consequences for your actions.

All I know is that we are not God, therefore judgement is not ours to give. What is between Fredo and gf is between the two and God only. However a mistake does not change who he is and the heart he has. According to God, we are to forgive 7x77 times and what happened here is not for everyone to speculate on.
