SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Sacramento police say their counterparts in Nevada have arrested a man they believe beat his former girlfriend and two children with a hammer until they were critically injured.

According to police, 23-year-old Deandre Chaney Jr. had been in an argument Friday with the woman before he attacked her, a 7-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy. Police said the three victims suffered “major injuries.”

On Saturday, Sacramento police said that officers in Winnemucca, Nevada, caught Chaney trying to hide in a residential yard.

The city is about 300 miles northeast of Sacramento along Interstate 80.

Chaney was arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide.
