Police say Ruben Arzu, 22, has been arrested for allegedly attacking the couple on Saturday night. The assailant was apparently naked and under the influence.
Arzu beat Rubio and his wife on their front porch as they arrived home from a party. The couple’s 10-year-old son was with them.
“From what I understand, he’s a bodybuilder, approximately 300 pounds, and the confrontation was violent,” said Cpl. Ray Mendez of the Colton Police Department.
Police said Rubio’s wife, 34, went inside to call 911 for help then ran back out to try and assist her 35-year-old husband. That’s when Arzu attacked her.
The beating left Rubio with a broken jaw and his wife suffered a fractured skull.
The motive for the attack was unclear.
Neighbor Patricia Hernandez said that she and her husband were awakened when Arzu started banging on their back door, demanding to be let in.
“My husband told me not to open the door but he was trying to beat it down to get in,” Hernandez said in Spanish.
Neighbors chased Arzu into the Hernandez’s backyard and cornered him until police arrived.
“He was very strong and very big and scary,” Hernandez said.
Despite being hit twice with a taser, it took four officers to finally subdue Arzu.
“Typically in law enforcement, we associate someone who is acting violent and naked to be under the influence of a stimulant or narcotic,” Mendez said.
“It’s a good thing our officers arrived on scene so quickly, because who knows who was next,” Mendez added.
Ruben Arzu is facing two counts of attempted murder and one count of aggravated mayhem. He is now at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center recovering from injuries he sustained during the incident.
