San Andreas, CA — A teen sustained injuries in a alleged assault over the weekend, resulting in a felony battery with serious bodily injury arrest for a male suspect.
According to Calaveras County Sheriff’s spokesperson Sgt. Rachelle Whiting, the suspect was taken into custody Saturday after responding deputies arrived around 8:40 on the scene of a reported family altercation in the 1000 block of Avery Sheep Ranch Road in Avery.
Upon arrival, deputies learned that 47-year-old Mark Anthony Scates of Alameda was involved a fight with a 16-year-old alleged victim that had resulted in injuries to the minor. Sgt. Whiting adds that in addition to the felony battery charge, there is also a felony corporal injury to a child charge pending against Scates, who was booked into the Calaveras County Jail.
