The Glenn County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday that they arrested 56-year-old Francis Garmin for an alleged attack on a family at a home on County Road 64 near State Route 45 in the Princeton area around 2:30 Friday morning.


The incident began when 31-year-old Amy Deniz was reportedly awakened by a masked intruder spraying chemicals from aerosol cans at her and her two children. The family dog reportedly chased the suspect out of the home. Officers found a vehicle belonging to Garmin stuck in the ditch near the home.


Investigators learned that the victim had a restraining order placed against Garmin. He was found at his home in Willows and was arrested.
