On 05-06-2022 at approximately 7:23 AM Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to investigate a domestic violence dispute in the 1400 block of South State Street in Ukiah, California.

Deputies contacted a 56 year-old male and his fiance, Chandra Silva, upon arrival.

Deputies learned that on 05-06-2022 at approximately 7:23 AM the adult male was physically assaulted by Silva during an argument.

During the altercation Silva ripped the adult male’s shirt off of him and hit him several times, causing injuries. The adult male had visible injuries on his face, neck and chest which were consistent with the assault.

At the conclusion of the investigation, Deputies placed Silva under arrest for 273.5  (Felony Domestic Violence Battery).

Silva was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where she was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.

Editor’s Note

The alleged actions described in this press release describe domestic abuse. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men experience sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetimes.

The following are domestic violence resources available in Mendocino County and surrounding areas:



  1. the sad part is this county ignored the fact that a 56 year old was grooming a 17 year old and when mandatory reported nobody did anything about this!? why? because there’s no money to be made off of someone about to age out in the CPS system so they waited for her to turn 18 and now they can make money off the domestic violence classes and SUDT and Probation… feed the court system (look at the other charges these two recently got arrested for). Sad story and this County should be ashamed for allowing this type of grooming to go unchecked.
