Olmsted deputy's attackers appear in court Wednesday morning

Fernando, Garcia Davila Fernando, Garcia Davila

An Olmsted County Sheriff's deputy was assaulted after a traffic stop led to a foot chase in Southeast Rochester two weeks ago. Two of the people involved in that attack appeared before a judge Wednesday morning. But a third failed to appear, and is now in even more trouble.

The mother and relative of the man who fled from law enforcement appeared in court Wednesday morning. But the man who's accused of fleeing the deputy was not in court, because he was taken into custody by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Just after midnight on September 3 a male deputy made a traffic stop near 13th Street Southeast and 6th Avenue Southeast, and the suspect inside the car took off on foot. The deputy caught up to him nearby, but three women jumped in and tried to fight off the deputy. Another man then joined in, and put the officer in a choke-hold. The deputy responded by telling the suspect he's free to go and the attackers fled.

Fernando Garcia-Davila posted bail last week, and was then apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The women's next court appearance will be for their plea hearings. But Angel Garcia-Davila, the man accused of putting a choke-hold on the deputy, failed to appear in court Wednesday morning. Investigators are being notified.

Maria Davila-Garcia, is due back in court October 16, and Gloria Garcia-Garza will appear before a judge on November 24.
