On 09-02-2022 at 12:35 AM the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office received a call of a physical assault in the 24000 block of Riffe Road in Covelo, California.

About an hour prior, the Sheriff's Office had received a call of a loud party in the same area possibly involving juveniles.

Deputies responded and contacted an adult female who was reportedly assaulted, Juan Davilla-Esquivel, and a 17-year-old female. 

Deputies learned Davilla-Esquivel and the adult female lived at the location and had children in common.  Deputies learned Davilla-Esquivel had "pushed" the adult female in the face causing visible injury.

Deputies were advised Davilla-Esquivel was on Mendocno County Probation for a prior Domestic Violence related assault.  Davilla-Esquivel was arrested for domestic violence battery (273.5 PC) and violation of probation (1203.2 PC).  

While investigating the above incident, Deputies contacted an intoxicated 17-year-old female at the location. The 17-year-old female provided the Deputies with a false name, but when confronted she provided her correct name and date of birth.

Deputies learned Davilla-Esquivel was at the location; drinking and using controlled substance(s) with the 17-year-old female. The charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor (272 PC) was added to his arrest charges. 

The juvenile female was arrested for providing a false name (148.9 PC) and was transported to the Mendocino County Juvenile Detention Facility.

Davilla-Esquivel was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $35,000.00 bail.
