The officer wrestled 42-year-old Ramon Solis to the ground in order to stop the attack, police said. As the officer tried to control the suspect, 18-year-old Sandra Solis jumped on top of the officer, police said.
The officer struggled with both suspects until other responding Ventura police officers arrived to assist.
The injured officer was taken to a local hospital and later released. The two suspects were also taken to the hospital for moderate injuries. They were later released and booked on felony charges at Ventura County Jail.
