Sonora, CA — 28 year old Jose Angel Rodriquez of Modesto was arrested following a bat wielding incident near the Ross Dress For Less store in the Timber Hills Shopping Center late Tuesday afternoon.
Rodriquez was employed at the store and had asked his manager if he could be excused as soon as Lee Freitas of Sonora entered the store. The two had a troubled history.
Rodriguez exited the store and joined 32 year old Kelly Sundborg also of Modesto. As soon as Freitas and his girlfriend, Amy Alves of Copperopolis, exited the store they were confronted by Rodriguez and Sundborg.
