Synopsis: On 06-14-2014 at about 3:30 AM Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies were summoned to the area of Talmage Road and Babcock Lane in Ukiah, California regarding an anonymous report of a female being chased by a male subject.

Upon arrival Deputies located an adult female at a business located at the intersection of Talmage Road and Hastings Road.

The Deputies noted the adult female appeared very upset and observed she had abrasion injuries to her lower legs and arms. The adult female reported she had been physically assaulted by her boyfriend, Randy McCormick-Blake.

The adult female told Deputies she and McCormick-Blake were arguing at a friend's home earlier in the evening. The argument was escalating so the adult female walked to the Talmage Bridge where she attempted to sleep for the night.

The adult female fell asleep for a short period before being awakened by McCormick-Blake grabbing her by the neck.

McCormick-Blake started choking her and slamming her face into the ground several times, causing her to lose consciousness during the incident. When the adult female awoke she was able to flee from McCormick-Blake.

The adult female started walking westbound on Talmage Road when she noticed McCormick-Blake running up behind her position.

McCormick-Blake caught up to the adult female and pulled her to the ground and attempted to drag her into a nearby vineyard. The adult female managed to free herself and ran to the nearby business.

Deputies observed abrasion injuries to the adult female's neck, arms and lower legs allegedly caused during the physical assault. The adult female was later transported to a local hospital for medical treatment.

Deputies located McCormick-Blake sleeping under the Talmage Road Bridge and he was subsequently arrested for felony domestic violence battery.

McCormick-Blake was booked into the Mendocino County jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.
