HORNBROOK, Calif. - A Siskiyou County man was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon Wednesday evening.

Deputies with the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office were sent out Wednesday around 5:32 p.m. to a home in the Hornbrook area for a reported assault with a firearm.

The victim said that a man hit him in the face with a firearm in his home and destroyed his property. The suspect then allegedly stole the victim’s vehicle and drove off.

The suspect was identified as Ryan Bowman, 30, of Cameron Park.

A resident in the area told officers that the stolen vehicle had crashed into a tree, and Bowman was seen running from the vehicle towards the Klamath River.

Deputies arrived and found Bowman soaking wet. Bowman told deputies he had just been in a car crash. Bowman was taken back to the victim and positively identified as the man who had assaulted the victim, according to the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office.

Bowman was taken to Fairchild Medical Center because of the car crash and was later arrested for armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and vehicle theft.

The victim was treated for his wounds and is expected to make a full recovery.

August began seasonably hot on this Sunday with fewer showers and thunderstorms than previous days, but a few did still pop over the higher terrain. Our rain chances are disappearing, but the heat and smoke will remain.
