A 28-year-old Carson City man was arrested early Sunday for alleged multiple offenses including suspicion of felony interference with a victim of battery by preventing them from calling for help, a sheriff’s deputy booking report states.
Christian Salazar was arrested at 1:18 a.m. in the 1500 block of North Edmonds Drive. He was also booked for suspicion of gross misdemeanor child neglect/endangerment, misdemeanor violation of a suspended sentence and misdemeanor domestic battery.
According to the arrest report, a sheriff’s deputy made a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. The officer made contact with the female driver who said she was 28 weeks pregnant, was kneed by her boyfriend in the stomach and was on her way to a friend’s house for help to get to the hospital.
The victim stated the man, Salazar, became extremely aggressive with her, grabbed her cell phone in which she tried to get back and was kneed in the stomach and held down on the couch. She further stated she tried to leave the residence several times but was unable to due to Salazar forcefully keeping her from leaving by holding her by the arms. The man had been drinking. The woman was able to get out of the residence and left in a vehicle, in which she was stopped for going at a high rate of speed.
The victim was transported to Carson Tahoe Hospital for evaluation. Officers went to the residence and made contact with the suspect. Deputies could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from his person. He was asked to explain about the dispute earlier, in which he stated he and the woman were arguing over phones but stated he never tried to keep her from leaving the residence and at no time was it physical between the two of them.
