A man was arrested Saturday after assaulting his ex-girlfriend and her daughter, then carjacking a woman in a central Fresno, Fresno police said.
A woman called police around 3:30 p.m. and said a man grabbed her by her hair, pulled her out of her car and then drove off. Police were able to locate the car by using the location of the woman’s phone, which was left in the car. Officers pulled over John Cedillo, 34, outside the Walmart at Herndon and Ingram avenues in northwest Fresno and arrested him.
After arresting Cedillo, officers discovered that he was wanted in an assault on his ex-girlfriend and her daughter just before the carjacking. Cedillo allegedly kicked in the door of his ex-girlfriend’s apartment in the 3000 block of West Saginaw Way, grabbed a hammer and hit her and her daughter in the back of the head before leaving on foot, police said.
