On 04-17-2022 at 6:54 P.M., Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a reported domestic violence incident in the 14000 block of Highway 128 in Boonville, California. 

Deputies responded from the Ukiah area; however the involved parties left the area prior to their arrival.  The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch Center broadcasted a welfare check for the vehicle and its occupants to the surrounding counties. 

A short time later Sheriff’s Dispatch received a call from the involved adult male, who reported he had pulled over in a rural area of Highway 128 due to the fact he had been physically assaulted while driving.  

The Deputies responded to the area and contacted the adult male and Ekaterina Alyabyeva.  The Deputies interviewed both individuals and learned they were in a dating relationship.  The Deputies observed visible injuries to the adult male’s body. 

As the Deputies continued their investigation, they developed probable cause to believe Alyabyeva physically assaulted the adult male in the Boonville area and again at a separate location on Highway 128 while they were driving.
