STOCKTON (CBS13) — A young girl and her father were injured after a violent encounter with a robbery suspect in their home early Sunday morning, according to police.
The Stockton Police Department said 21-year-old Robert Garcia was walking home from a bar when he broke into the 2300 block of Wagner Heights Road just after 4:30 a.m., heading straight to the room of a 12-year-old girl.
When the girl woke up and saw the shirtless suspect laying down on top of her, she screamed, and Garcia allegedly punched her in the face repeatedly, police said.
The commotion woke up other family members, who found the man leaving the girl’s bedroom and attempted to restrain him. After a struggle that left the girl’s father injured, Garcia was restrained until police arrived, authorities said.
Garcia is facing charges of residential robbery, battery and child abuse. The injured victims are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
