A Menlo Park man is facing multiple felony charges after he allegedly assaulted a woman and another man outside a Palo Alto home on Monroe Drive on Monday afternoon, Palo Alto police said.
Zachary Bilal Edward Lewis, 22, allegedly punched the Palo Alto woman in the face during an altercation and struck a man in the front yard of a home on Monroe Drive at about 2:24 p.m., police Sgt. Patty Lum said.
Lewis broke the woman's cell phone during the argument. He jumped into his truck and allegedly tried to run the man down as he fled the scene. A police officer stopped his truck on Forest Avenue after spotting him near the police station, Lum said.
He was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail in San Jose on three felonies: domestic violence, assault and assault with a deadly weapon; and for destroying a wireless device, which is a misdemeanor.
Lum said the male victim had a minor laceration and the woman also had minor injuries but drove herself to the hospital.
