A woman allegedly attacked and injured a deputy from the Fontana Station before being arrested during an incident on July 29, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
At 3:03 p.m., the Sheriff’s Department responded to a call for service in the 10400 block of Cedar Avenue in Bloomington.
The reporting party said that the suspect, later identified as Precious Cox, a 32-year-old transient who frequents Bloomington, allegedly blocked the door, refused to allow customers to enter a business, and refused to leave when asked.
The first arriving deputy found Cox inside the business and tried to reason with her. Cox still refused to leave, and the deputy tried to arrest her for trespassing. Cox allegedly violently struggled with the deputy for several minutes and struck her. With the assistance of a store employee, Cox was eventually handcuffed.
The deputy received minor injuries because of this incident and required medical care. She was treated at a local hospital and later released to continue her recovery.
After receiving medical attention, Cox was booked into West Valley Detention Center for allegedly using violence toward an executive officer and battery on a law enforcement officer requiring medical treatment.
