Man arrested for family violence and assault on peace officer


On Monday, July 27, 2020, officers assigned to the Southern Precinct Command were entertaining a domestic violence complaint at a home in Santa Rita, relative to a welfare concern from a family member.

Preliminary police reports suggest that while officers were on scene and talking to a female victim, they learned that the victim’s boyfriend, 33-year-old Cristobal Frank Quintanilla, had assaulted her.

During the course of the investigation, Cristobal Quintanilla became irate and charged towards an officer in which a struggle ensued. During the course of the struggle, officers had to deploy the TASER twice, allowing officers to restrain Mr. Quintanilla.

Cristobal Quinatanilla was later transported to the Southern Precinct Command where he was treated by Guam Fire Department’s medical personnel. Two officers were also treated at Guam Memorial Hospital for injuries sustained during the course of restraining Mr. Quintanilla.

Cristobal Frank Quintanilla was later arrested for the following offenses:
-Family Violence
-Resisting Arrest
-Assault on Peace Officer
-and Violation of a Court Order

Cristobal Frank Quintanilla was subsequently booked and confined at the Department of Corrections.

This case has been forwarded to the Office of the Attorney General for prosecution.
