Synopsis: On 7/23/13 at 1830 hours, Deputies were dispatched to the 38000 block of Old Stage Road in Gualala, CA for a reported brandishing of a firearm.

Upon arrival, they contacted the victim, Jacobo Coria-Garcia, who stated the suspect, Torres, was looking for his girlfriend, Coria-Garcia's daughter. The victim advised Torres that she was not there. Torres grabbed a firearm and made threats to the victim while pointing the firearm at him. The victim stated this happened at least two times.

At some point before leaving the residence, Torres put the firearm down and physically assaulted the victim with his hands causing minor injuries.
