Synopsis: On 05-05-2014, at approximately 8:40 PM, Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a residence on Lake St., Point Arena, to contact the victim of an attack that occurred at that location.

The deputies contacted an adult female and her friend, Jacob Maxwell, and were told that the female's estranged husband, Anthony Brosseau, had entered the residence, uninvited and unannounced, and began physically assaulting Maxwell. When the female attempted to intervene, Brosseau punched her, striking her on the face. Brosseau then left, damaging a vehicle as he past it. Both victims displayed injuries consistent with their statements and neither needed medical attention.

On 05-06-2014 Anthony Brosseau contacted the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office regarding this incident and he was arrested without incident. Brosseau was lodged at the Mendocino County Jail for the listed charges, with bail set at $50,000.00.
