Chino Hills Man Arrested, Assault With a Deadly Weapon

By Anthony Saude

On January 30, 2018 at approximately 8:00 p.m., Augustus Jamora, 37, a resident of Chino Hills assaulted a female victim at her Chino Hills residence. Jamora held a hand gun to the victim’s head and threatened to kill her. He then he physically assaulted the victim’s relative as they attempted to help the victim. Jamora fled the residence to an unknown location before Chino Hills officers arrived on the scene. Emergency Protective Orders were issued for the victims. There was a warrant requested and issued for Jamora’s arrest before the day was over.

The following day fueled by anger, Jamora returned to the victim’s residence and was brought his gun with him again. This time he was still on the premises when responding deputies arrived and surrounded the location. The deputies began evacuating nearby homes and businesses for safety purposes. Deputies conducted public announcements, requesting Jamora surrender peacefully, but he refused. Jamora barricaded himself inside the house for approximately one hour despite the attempts by the officers to end the standoff. He then attempted to escape through the back door of the residence. Jamora was quickly apprehended, arrested and taken into custody without any further incident.

Jamora was booked into the West Valley Detention Center. He was charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Criminal Threats, and violation of an Emergency Retraining Order.
