RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Ca. – Two inmates attacked a female deputy at the West Valley Detention Center, throwing vomit on her and slashing her face, officials said.
The deputy who was attacked on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, at around 6:12 p.m. is no longer hospitalized and expected to make a full recovery. The deputy who was victimized was supervising those inside the housing unit when she came across two inmates who were on the ground. Kyanna Patterson, 24, who has been in custody for attempted murder and other various other charges appeared to be having a seizure. Rose Villalobos, 32, who has been in custody since April 2019 for assault was apparently assisting Patterson.
The deputy approached Patterson and Villalobos to assist, but Villalobos stood up and threw a cup of vomit onto the deputy’s face. The assault continued with Villalobos slashing the deputy in her face with a razor, then grabbing her radio to strike her in the head with it several times. As the assault occurred, several deputies responded and subsequently detained the inmates.
The deputy was treated at a local hospital and later released. Amber Tena, 34, was learned to also be involved in the assault by alerting the others when to attack. The report will be submitted to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office for possible charges.
