ANDERSON, California – A man who officers say was likely under the influence of methamphetamine attacked a woman and her neighbor’s home late Monday, according to the Anderson Police Department.

Officers at about 10:51 p.m. went to the 2100 block of Knobcone Avenue, off Pinon Avenue west of Highway 273 and just north of the Shasta Outlets, for a report that a man had thrown a rock through a front window of a home was trying to climb inside.Ault--Phillip

Police located  in the front yard of the home. He displayed symptoms of being under the influence of meth and refused orders from police to get on the ground and show his hands, Anderson police officer Tyler Finch said.

Officers hit Ault twice with a stun gun and were able to arrest him after a brief struggle, according to police.

Police interviewed witnesses and learned Ault followed a woman from the Tower Mart gas station just off 273 to her home and punched her in the face when she told him to leave, Finch said. The woman ran to a neighbor’s home but not before Ault punched her again and threatened to kill her, police said.

Neighbors let the woman inside their home and locked the door. Ault began yelling and claimed the house was now his and his mother’s mansion before throwing a brick through the window, Finch said.

A man inside the home stabbed Ault in the arm with a knife to defend himself and his family as Ault tried to enter through the window, police said. Ault retreated the home’s front yard before other neighbors cornered him and police arrived, Finch said.

Police took Ault to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries before booking him into the Shasta County Jail on suspicion of criminal threats, residential burglary, vandalism, assault and resisting arrest.

The woman Ault is accused of attacking received minor injuries but didn’t require medical attention, police said.
