Probationer breaks into Turlock home

A Turlock man on probation for multiple offenses is facing a litany of new charges after breaking into the home of his former girlfriend.

At 9:41 p.m. on June 27, the Turlock Police Department received a report from a woman in the 500 block of High Street reporting that her ex-boyfriend, Domingo Mendez, 29, of Turlock had forced entry into her residence.

While on the phone with dispatch, Mendez fled out the door to the backyard and as officers approached they saw him jump a fence into a neighboring backyard.

An officer gave orders for Mendez to stop running, but he failed to comply and ran into another neighbor’s yard and hid, according to the police report.

A K9 unit from the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene and was used to apprehend Mendez.

Mendez has multiple restraining orders from the victim and is on probation for robbery, domestic violence, and vandalism. He was booked for violating a restraining order, resisting, burglary, damaged property, and violating probation.
