The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office identified the man who reportedly beat his grandmother with a broom in Cambria Tuesday morning.
Tony Cipolla, the public information officer for the sheriff’s office, confirmed James Scott Rimbach, 46, was the person arrested for allegedly attacking his grandmother with a broom.
The incident happened on Bridge Street Monday afternoon when deputies responded to a report of a man who harmed his relative.
The situation turned into a standoff when he refused to leave the house.
Rimbach was arrested for battery causing serious bodily injury, elder abuse and assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm.
We are working to receive his mugshot and bail information. This will be updated.
