Video shows domestic violence suspect in car trying to hit people helping victim in California

TEMECULA, California -- Witnesses at the scene of a suspected domestic violence incident captured video of a man trying to run over Good Samaritans who were helping the victim in California.

Authorities said the incident happened around 10 a.m. on Ynez Road in the parking lot of a Food 4 Less grocery store in Temecula. They responded to multiple reports of a man being physical with a woman.

Witnesses stepped in to try to protect the woman. At some point, one of the Good Samaritans took a video, which shows the man getting in a car and attempting to run over some of them with the vehicle.

People are seen kicking and trying to punch the driver's side window as he backs up, almost hitting a woman who fell down behind the car, and speeds through the parking lot. He attempts to exit and is eventually caught by authorities.

The man, identified as Brian Ferrer, 25, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and felony domestic violence. Authorities said the woman suffered injuries, but the extent was unknown.
