Columbia Woman's Eyebrow Completely Bitten Off, Stabbings and More in Alcohol Fueled Melee On Yankee Hill

Columbia, CA...On 4/20/14 about 5:00 P.M. Deputies were called to a dispute occurring at a residence in the 12000 block of Yankee Hill Rd in Columbia. Upon arrival the Deputies met with several individuals whom all had been consuming alcohol and appeared under the influence of alcohol. Deputies determined that four of the individuals whom had been staying together at the residence had been drinking throughout the day. An argument turned into a physical fight between the four individuals...

During the course of the altercation a 46 year old female was bitten in the face allegedly by the suspect, a 45 year old Columbia man. The bite completely removed one of the victim’s eyebrows. A 54 year old male victim was stabbed twice in the shoulder allegedly by the suspect, 48 year old Dean Phillips Jr.

The female victim was transported from the residence to Sonora Regional Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.

The male victim had left the residence just prior to the Deputies arriving and he was located in the parking lot of a business on Parrots Ferry Road. He was also transported by ambulance to Sonora Regional Medical Center for his injuries.

Both victim’s injuries are considered non-life threatening.

The Columbia Man was booked into the Tuolumne County Jail for violation of 205 P.C Aggravated Mayhem. He is being held at the Tuolumne County Jail on $500.000 Bail.

The proper use is: $500,000, not 500.000 Dollar.

It looks like we have some real winners here! Some of our finest and most leading citizens over here on the Tuolumne County side. It looks like they haven’t heard the old saying “Drunk and stupid is no way to go through life!”
