Man Charged with Attacking Wife, Police in Anaheim


SANTA ANA (CNS) - A 25-year-old man was charged today with attacking his live-in girlfriend and police officers who attempted to arrest him in Anaheim.

Rozzalle Lamont Hellens is facing two counts each of assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant and false imprisonment, and one count each of child abuse and endangerment, criminal threats, assault with a weapon on a peace officer and assault with a stun gun on a peace officer -- all felonies. He is also charged with three misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and child abuse and endangerment.

Hellens is accused of attacking the victim about 9 a.m. Saturday in the 2900 block of East Lincoln Avenue in front of their infant daughter, Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer said.

When police attempted to take him into custody about 8 p.m. Sunday, he tried to grab an officer's Taser during a struggle, Carringer said. Hellens got away momentarily and attempted to run away, but was quickly taken into custody, the sergeant said.
