An El Centro man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after he allegedly hit a woman on the head with a coat hangar Tuesday, according to El Centro police officials.
Marvin Beck, 59, was booked into the county jail with his bail set at $100,000 in connection with the incident.
In a twist to the story, it was Beck who called police shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday, stating he had just arrived to his home in the 1200 block of Olive Ave. Beck reported he had seen a woman leaving his residence.
Beck also told police the woman had headed west on Olive, according to El Centro police Lt. Paul Longoria, who added police at that time were treating the case as a possible burglary.
