Synopsis: On 07.25.12, at about 11:00 AM, Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies were called to respond to Redwood Coast Medical Services, in Gualala, to contact a victim of domestic violence who was there seeking medical treatment.

The victim explained that she had a child with Joshua Miller, but they no longer have a relationship. On 07.25.12, at about 10:00 hrs., Miller made several attempts to contact the victim and then arrived at her residence, unannounced and uninvited. The victim told Miller to leave then went into her house and Miller followed her in. The victim continued to tell Miller to leave and picked up the telephone to call 911. Miller grabbed the telephone from the victim, preventing the call and breaking the telephone.

The victim lured Miller out of the house and once outside again told him to leave. Miller then hit the victim in the head with a metal walking crutch, knocking her to the ground and left.

The victim was treated at Redwood Coast Medical Center and released. Miller was later contacted by deputies at his residence. Miller was arrested without incident for violations of 245(A)(1) PC, 273.5 PC, and 591 PC, served with an Emergency Protective Order, and booked into the Mendocino County Jail with bail set at $30,000.00.
