RAMONA, Calif. — A 52-year-old Ramona man was facing charges Monday for allegedly assaulting two people after attempting to ram one of them with his vehicle over the weekend.

Mark Dwayne Gordon was arrested Sunday and subsequently booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, battery and vandalism in connection with the attack Saturday on Rangeland Road, just west of Ramona, sheriff’s Sgt. Rob Samuels said.

Gordon’s arrest came after one of the victims turned over cell phone video allegedly showing the suspect’s vehicle accelerating toward him twice. Samuels said the man was able to jump out of the way both times.

Gordon eventually got out of the vehicle and assaulted the two victims, knocking the cell phone to the ground, Samuels said. Neither victim suffered significant injuries.

Authorities did not disclose a suspected motive for the attack.
