Two domestic violence suspects appear in court

Yuma--Two men involved in separate domestic violence incidents appear in court Thursday afternoon.

Two men, one accused of hitting his girlfriend with a frying pan and the other accused of firing a gun during a domestic dispute with his girlfriend appeared in Yuma Justice court.

Dylan Escalante made his initial appearance in court Thursday afternoon.

Escalante had been wanted by YCSO where he allegedly beat his girlfriend with a frying pan on Tuesday.

Authorities said he left the area of Avenue B and 4th Place after the domestic fight.

His girlfriend was taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center for multiple fractures to her skull, neck and hand as a result of the assault.

An Amberly's Place victim's advocate read a statement from Escalante's girlfriend:

"Your honor, I wish I could physically be here but due to my injuries. I am still hospitalized. I am asking for the highest bond possible, nobody deserves this."

Escalante turned himself to YCSO Wednesday afternoon.

Escalante is facing five felony counts.

He faces one count for attempted murder, one count for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of endangerment and one count for unlawful imprisonment.

In a separate case, 31-year old Jason Anderson of Yuma appeared before Judge Gregory Stewart as well.

According to the YCSO, they were called out to the 11-thousand block of South Sandra Avenue Tuesday morning.

Neighbors said they woke up to a gun shot and a woman screaming "he's shooting at me".

That woman was 31 year old Jessica McAdams who neighbors said is Anderson's girlfriend.

Anderson faces a laundry list of charges.

One count of disorderly conduct, one count of endangerment, one count of aggravated assault and one count of unlawful discharge of a firearm.

Escalante's bond was set at $500,000 dollars and is set to appear in court next week. Anderson is out on bond and is scheduled to be in court next month.
