A 29-year-old parolee who police say did time for a murder conviction was arrested Tuesday morning after allegedly attacking residents in Redondo Beach.
Officers were dispatched about 7:25 a.m. to the 1800 block of Speyer Lane to investigate a report of a resident involved in a fight with a burglary suspect, according to Redondo Beach Police Department Lt. Mario Fizulich.
The resident sustained significant injuries to his head and face but managed to push the suspect out of his garage before closing the door, Fizulich said.
“As units arrived on scene, they were directed to the coroner of Flagler Lane and Belmont Lane, where the suspect was physically assaulting a resident who had come to the aid of a female resident who was also physically assaulted by the suspect as she prepared to take her children to school,” Fizulich said.
The suspect, who appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance, was combative and would not comply with officers. He was taken into custody and taken to a hospital for treatment, according to the lieutenant.
Three victims and one officer were injured and treated at the scene by paramedics before one of the victims was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, Fizulich said.
The suspect, identified as Eric Terrell Davis, was booked on suspicion of burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, attempted kidnapping and possession of narcotics.
Police said Davis was on parole after serving a sentence for murder, details of which were not immediately available.
Davis was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to sheriff’s inmate records.
