NILAND — An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of battery with serious bodily injury and criminal threats after he punched a 24-year-old man here.
County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Pompeyo Tabarez said Steve Allison Singh of Niland allegedly punched a 24-year-old man. Singh also threatened his mother-in-law, who was accompanying the victim.
Tabarez said units responded to the United Food Center at the corner of Highway 111 and Main Street in Niland about 2:24 p.m. Friday. Tabarez said Deputy Luis Carrasco was the first to arrive and took reports about the incident from the assault victim and the mother-in-law of Singh.
Tabarez said officials preferred not to release the names of the victim and the woman.
According to statements given to Carrasco, Singh got into an argument with the man and his mother-in-law that resulted in the punch.
