Synopsis: On 9-06-13 at approximately 12:45 AM, Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a residence on Mitomka Way in Willits to investigate a reported incident of domestic violence.

On arrival, the Deputies contacted the forty year-old female victim. Swelling was visible around her left eye and there was a 1/2 inch cut on her left eyelid. She refused medical attention.

The victim told Deputies that she and her cohabitant boyfriend of seven years, Christopher Doak, had been drinking when they began to argue about relationship issues. They were seated on their bed at the time.

As the argument grew more heated, Doak kicked the victim in the hip area, causing her to fall off of the bed and strike her head on a glass night stand. Doak fled the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement in a black Toyota Sequoia.

After obtaining an emergency protective order for the victim, the Deputies searched the area for Doak without success. At approximately 2:35 AM, they returned to the residence and found that Doak's car was parked in front of the house. The found Christopher Doak sleeping in his car and arrested him for causing injury to a spouse or cohabitant. He was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
