Police have arrested the man they say attacked a woman on the Stevens Creek Trail in Mountain View on Monday night.
The man has been identified as 29-year-old Michael Wendy Adonis.
Around 10 p.m. on Monday police say a woman was walking on the trail when Adonis approached her. The victim says he introduced himself as “Jerry.”
When she ignored him, the victim says he grabbed her and pushed her into the bushes.
According to authorities, Adonis then began punching the woman multiple times in the face. When a couple witnessed the incident, they yelled at him.
Adonis stopped, police say, allowing the victim to bite him in an effort to get away.
Officers say they were responding to reports of battery Friday night on Santa Clara Avenue when they noticed the man involved fit the description of the trail attack suspect. They say he also had bite marks on his hands consistent with what the victim told police.
Police obtained a search warrant of the house and say they found the clothes the victim said he was wearing.
The victim was treated for serious injuries to her face but is expected to be ok.
Adonis is being charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment, criminal threats, assault with intent to commit mayhem or rape, battery, and unlawfully damaging a wireless communication device.
