A Beaumont man was behind bars Monday on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend at a Beaumont residence early Sunday.
She was hospitalized for treatment of her injuries.
Alfredo Lopez, 32, allegedly fled to San Bernardino, where he eventually surrendered to San Bernardino police, a Beaumont spokeswoman said Monday.
Someone called 9-1-1 at 2:53 a.m. Sunday and reported a domestic dispute in the 1300 block of Bird of Paradise Court, just east of the Anna Hause Elementary School campus and Cherry Avenue, according to Beaumont spokeswoman Darci Mulvihill.
Police arrived and determined a male suspect, identified as Lopez, had assaulted his girlfriend and fled the scene, with a possible destination of a family member’s residence in the city of San Bernardino, Mulvihill said in a statement.
The girlfriend, an adult female, was transported to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries, Mulvihill said.
Beaumont police requested assistance from San Bernardino police, who responded to a home in the 3700 block of Big Canyon Court, between Waterman Avenue and Little Mountain Drive in north San Bernardino.
Police tried to make contact with Lopez, who initially refused to come out of the residence, Mulvihill said.
Just before 9:28 a.m. Sunday, Lopez surrendered to police and was arrested, Mulvihill said.
Lopez was booked early Monday at Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning on the charges of spousal abuse and threatening to commit a crime which causes great bodily injury or death, according to Mulvihill and inmate records.
He was held without bail. He has a court appearance Wednesday in Banning.
An update on his girlfriend's condition was not available Monday.
Anyone with further information about the incident was urged to contact Beaumont police at (951) 769-8500.
