Calaveras Arrest of Salinas Man

Calaveras County sheriff’s deputies recently arrested a Salinas man on various charges including failing to register as a sex offender. The incident occurred Tuesday night at a home off of Sequoia Court in Copperopolis. The suspect, 49-year-old Jay Ybarra, Jr., whose most recent address is listed as in Salinas, allegedly punched and stomped the victim. While he fled before deputies arrived, Ybarra was located shortly afterwards at a nearby residence. Ybarra faces fresh charges of battery with serious bodily injury and failing to register as a sex offender, as well as warrants for failing to appear on charges of alcohol-related disorderly conduct and two traffic offenses. The investigation into the beating incident is ongoing.
