Two Modesto women were arrested in Turlock on Saturday after one assaulted an officer and another tried to intervene, according to the Turlock Police Department.
Around 1:30 a.m. Saturday the Turlock Police Department dispatched officers to a downtown bar in the 100 block of W. Main Street regarding two women were refusing to leave the business.
Tania Alejandra Mendoza-Aquayo, 24, of Modesto and Crisol Jimenez-Mancilla, 24, of Modesto were contacted and were told by officers to leave the establishment, which they refused to do, said Turlock Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Parmley.
Eventually, the two women complied and left the business. They were both showing “objective symptoms of intoxication,” said Parmley and the officers followed them out of the bar.
At this point, Mendoza-Aquayo allegedly assaulted one of the officers.
“While attempting to take Mendoza-Aquayo into custody for the assault, Jimenez-Mancilla, attempted to intervene,” Parmley said.
Both women were taken into custody after a brief struggle.
Jimenez-Mancilla was booked for public intoxication and resisting while Mendoza-Aquayo was arrested for assaulting an officer and public intoxication.
