Synopsis: On 07/04/2013 at approximately 2019 hours, Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office received a radio call for service regarding a physical assault in the 100 block of Main Street in Point Arena, California.

Deputies arrived at approximately 2100 hours and contacted the victim, Timothy Hall.

Hall told Deputies that the suspect, Janet Guess, had entered his home and demanded that he give her his prescription medications. After Hall refused to provide Guess with his prescription medications, Guess took possession of Hall’s cane and struck Hall in the head causing a minor visible injury.

Hall was able to take the cane away from Guess after a brief struggle. Guess continued to demand Hall’s medications then attacked Hall by striking him several times with closed fists. Guess then left the location and Hall called 9-1-1.

Deputies contacted Guess who was subsequently arrested for the listed charges and ultimately transported to the Mendocino County Jail where she was booked to be held in lieu of $150,000.00 bail.
