Synopsis: On 03/14/2014 at approximately 2:43 A.M., Fort Bragg Police Officers requested the presence of Mendocino County Sheriff Deputies for an investigation into a domestic related physical assault that occurred within the Sheriff’s jurisdiction.

Deputies responded to the intersection of South Street and Franklin Street where contact was made with Fort Bragg Police Officers and the female victim.

Deputies spoke to the victim and learned that on 03/13/2014 at approximately 9:48 P.M., the victim's ex-boyfriend, Dylan Swartout, became enraged with the victim and punched her in the head, while both where consuming alcohol beneath the Hare Creek Bridge (18000 block of North Highway 1, Fort Bragg). The victim had visible injury to the side of her face that was consistent with an assault.

At approximately 5:30 A.M., Deputies located and contacted Swartout beneath the Hare Creek Bridge and placed him under arrest and took him into custody without incident. Swartout was ultimately transported to the Mendocino County Jail and booked on the listed charge with bail set at $25,000.00.
