Jamestown, CA — Yesterday October 16th at about 6:30pm deputies were called to the Tesoro gas station (Whistle Stop) on Highway 108 due to a fight in the parking lot.
The physical fight involved Juan Valdez and an unnamed woman which he was found to be in a domestic relationship with.
The woman claimed Valdez had called her earlier in the day and threatened to harm a family member if she did not pick him up in Manteca. The woman picked up Valdez but said he threatened her life several times and restricted her movements, not allowing her to leave the car.

Juan Valdez was booked into the Tuolumne County Jail for; Kidnapping, Terroristic Threats, Robbery, Violation of a Domestic Violence Protective Order, Battery and Violation of Probation
