ALHAMBRA – A Baldwin Park woman faces charges of attempted murder after she plowed into her husband with her SUV in the courthouse parking lot as he returned from lunch for jury duty with a female juror, police said. Cynthia Estrada, 23, was arrested by Alhambra police Sgt. Joe Flannagan on April 24 – the day of the incident – after turning herself in at the East Los Angeles station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, said Alhambra police Sgt. Kean Oda. She is charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and infliction of great bodily injury under the circumstances of domestic violence, according to a felony complaint. Gilbert Alvarado, 22, of West Covina was transported to Alhambra Hospital Medical Center, where he was treated for a fractured left knee cap and cuts and abrasions on both arms, Oda said. Estrada is being held at Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood on $1,050,000 bail. She is scheduled to appear in Pasadena Superior Court this morning for a hearing.

County Deputy District Attorney Mari Estrella, who declined to comment on the case, plan to ask the judge for a continuance. Oda said Alhambra police received a call at 12:45 p.m. April 24 to respond to the parking lot of the Alhambra Courthouse, at 150 W. Commonwealth Ave. Upon arrival, an officer found paramedics tending to Alvarado. The man told officers that his wife had hit him with her Chevy Blazer and fled the area, running into several parked cars in the process, Oda said. The front license plate from Estrada’s vehicle was found at the scene as well. Though police could not locate Estrada, she turned herself in to sheriff’s deputies at about 5 p.m. the same day, Oda said. Flannagan interviewed her at the Sheriff’s Department, then booked her into custody. Oda said Estrada admitted to Flannagan that she hit Alvarado with her car that day, and that the couple have recently had “domestic arguments.” Oda also said Estrada told Flannagan she hit Alvarado with the car after seeing him returning to jury duty from lunch with a female fellow juror. last_img read more
