On December 29, 2017, at 12:08 PM, officers from the Temecula Police Department responded to a suspicious circumstance call at a two-story residence located in 32000 block of Corte Carmona.

Officers forced the bedroom door open and they were able to rescue the elderly female, and get her to safety. The man subsequently broke a window and jumped out on to the roof.

The man will be booked into jail upon his release from the hospital.
