SAN MARCOS - Authorities asked for the public's help Tuesday in finding a man suspected of beating a woman in San Marcos, then ramming his vehicle into a good Samaritan who came to her rescue.
Deputies responded to reports that a man was beating a woman in the area of Rue De Valle and Margie Place about 7:30 p.m. Monday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Martha Hernandez.
Once there, they found good Samaritans had already halted the beating by separating the man and the woman, the sergeant said in a statement.
They also learned that the man got in his car, sped away and then made a U-turn. He drove back to the scene, where he rammed his vehicle into one of the good Samaritans before bailing on foot and getting away, Hernandez said.
According to the sergeant, the good Samaritan was taken to Palomar Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening leg injuries. The woman who was beaten did not suffer serious injuries, she said.
Anyone with information about the case was asked to call the Sheriff's Department's San Marcos substation at (760) 510-5200.
